WCPA makes the Jones Theater available for events, dance, music, plays, and other performances by community and outside performing arts groups each year. Last year, the Second Street Dance Studio of Westcliffe performed “Viva Las Vegas,” a dance recital; In Concert presented Spinphony; and the Custer County High School Drama Club performed a play, “The Pajama Game.”
In A Taste of Shakespeare WCPA offers the Westcliffe community and visitors an overview of the season’s Shakespeare plays, with opportunities to meet the directors and actors.
As 2017 events are booked over the next few months this page will be updated. Please check back from time to time!

Altius Quartet is an ensemble determined to further the art of chamber music through performance, education, and outreach. Altius strives to communicate their vision of conveying art to a more diverse audience and engaging directly with the community. Hailed as “rich” and “captivating” by the renowned music blog, “I Care If You Listen,” the Altius Quartet is garnering an international reputation and enrapturing the hearts of audiences through their charisma and dynamism.
Altius has been awarded prizes at many internationally respected competitions including the 2016 Alice and Eleonore Schoenfeld International String Competition, the 2014 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, the 2014 Coltman Chamber Music Competition, and the 2013 Plowman Chamber Music Competition.
Formed in 2011 at Southern Methodist University Meadows School of the Arts, Altius holds the position as Fellowship String Quartet-in-Residence at the University of Colorado-Boulder, where they are mentored by the Takacs Quartet. The quartet has an active performance schedule including engagements at music festivals, series and universities throughout the United States, often performing concerts and teaching master classes in public schools and alternative performing venues, including jazz clubs, bars, and cafes.
