Broomfield Film Project (BFP) is proud to present its first event, Colorado Shorts, a series of short films from the 2017 Denver Film Festival. This entertaining combination of genres - comedy, drama, documentary and animation – showcases the work of local filmmakers and actors.
BFP, a new program of Broomfield Council on the Arts and Humanities, is coordinated by Heather Doran, who began her film career creating props for the Disney movie 10 Things I Hate About You before becoming a Location Scout and Manager on films including Life or Something Like It starring Angelina Jolie and Solaris starring George Clooney. Most recently she was a Location Scout on Amateur, a basketball story filmed here in Colorado and released in April on Netflix. Heather is excited to bring film viewing events to the Broomfield community and to offer unique opportunities for residents and non-residents alike to learn about filmmakers and the film-making process.
The year of 2016 was the premiere of BCAH’s Broomfield Community Players (BCP), a theatrical group for those 16 years and older. Community input indicated a desire for an adult theatrical group. BCP has produced The Importance of Being Earnest, Plaza Suite, and Death Trap.
Check back for details about upcoming performances.
The Broomfield Council on the Arts & Humanities presents and supports diverse programming to enrich the community of Broomfield. This page is dedicated to those programs which BCAH presents or of which BCAH is proud to be a partner. Events are listed in alphabetical order.
ANNUAL SUMMER SUNDAY SERIES
ASTER Women's Chamber Choir is a small (18-20 voice) women's ensemble in Broomfield, which frequently performs at the Broomfield Auditorium and in other local locations. ASTER is an open and affirming organization. We welcome women of all ages, ethnicities, religious and sexual orientations. We have kept our members' dues to a minimum so that women of all economic backgrounds will be able to join. Also, we have provided financial assistance to women who cannot afford to purchase our concert attire and provided stipends to women who needed assistance to pay for childcare while they are attended rehearsals. The meaning of the name "ASTER" comes from The Meaning of Flowers in which Gretchen Scoble wrote: “Asters speak of the tiny beginnings from which all great things proceed.”
Broomfield Council on the Arts & Humanities Presents ASTER Women’s Chamber Choir in Women of the Great American Songbook
March 16 | 2 p.m.
Broomfield Auditorium: 3 Community Rd.
This concert has something for everyone! In addition to girl group tunes Java Jive, Mister Sandman, and Heebie Jeebies along with Tin Pan Alley favorites I Can’t Give You Anything But Love, On the Sunny Side of the Street, and You Oughta Be in Pictures, ASTER includes music not typically associated with “The Great American Songbook.” Audience members will hear lullabies, courting songs, and hymns traditionally sung by Navajo and Appalachian women, like I Gave My Love a Cherry and Down to the River to Pray. Whether it was Dorothy Fields writing snappy lyrics, women singing while they worked and worshipped or sister acts entertaining the troops and those at home, American women have made a great contribution to the history of American music. Come join us and bring a friend!
Tickets: Adults $12, students and seniors $8
