The fourth season of Music on the Mountain concerts came to a close on Saturday night with a knock-out performance by The Missing Link Band and a first for Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park: a flash mob! Community Banks of Colorado sponsored this concert, and employee Michele Diamond decided to have some fun with it and spice things up a bit.
“I’ve always wanted to be in a flash mob, so I decided to plan one myself,” Michele explained.
She worked with Christina Brusig, a dance teacher at Glenwood Springs Center for the Arts, to choreograph the dance to the song, “It’s a Beautiful Day” by U2, and then coordinated it with The Missing Link Band. The dancers included Michele and other Community Banks employees, along with most of Christina’s dance class.
The Missing Link Band, the only band to perform each of the series’ four years, put on a great show that brought in 906 cans of food for the LIFT-UP food pantry. This year, there were 11 “cans-for-a-tram” concerts, including a special July 4 event to benefit the victims of the Waldo Canyon Fire in Colorado Springs and a Christian Music on the Mountain evening. Altogether, the community donated 7,606 cans of food and personal care items.
In addition to Community Banks of Colorado, this year’s sponsors were Bighorn Toyota, Glenwood Springs Post Independent, KSPN, Coors, Swire Coca-Cola, Glenwood TV, Glenwood Insurance & Pinnacol Assurance and the Hotel Glenwood Springs. They helped make this the best year yet for Music on the Mountain!
