On December 18, 2012, Clay Aiken brought the Joyful Noise Tour to a spectacular area of the United States…Beaver Creek, Colorado.
I can’t think of a more beautiful place to have a Joyful Noise Concert than Beaver Creek, Colorado. Beaver Creek is a modern resort area with the feeling of an alpine village. In the winter it is an active ski center.
The village is made up of many shops, restaurants and spas. It even has an outdoor ice rink. The beautiful Vilar Performing Arts Center is right in the village. According to the Vilar Center website:
The Vilar Center for the Arts is a spectacular state-of-the-art center in Vail, Colorado, boasting a 530 seat theater, two 2,200 square-foot lobbies and the May Gallery Patrons Lounge, which hosts an amazing display of 17th and 18th century architectural watercolors. The center first opened in 1998, and offers a cultural center for the Beaver Creek area and hosts events and exhibitions all year round. Tourists and locals alike are welcome!
I thought it was interesting that the theatre is below ground under an ice skating rink. And I do remember that the bus had to travel through a snow storm to get the musicians to and from the area.
Did you get to attend a Joyful Noise Concert in 2012?
