Ouray County Performing Arts Guild is a well respected non-profit that was first established in Ouray in 1983. Since then, the mission has been to bring the best possible entertainment to the county’s citizens, visitors and youth. Events include many genres of music – classical, jazz, folk, theater, bluegrass, Celtic, instrumental and vocal. Dance and poetry performances are also presented.

Upcoming Events!

One For the Foxes

Thursday, March 28, 2024   7:30 p.m.

Wright Opera House in Ouray


One for the Foxes, a dynamic new transatlantic trio, features Ireland’s Tadhg Ó Meachair (piano, accordion) and Dave Curley (vocals, guitar), alongside Colorado, USA’s Joanna Hyde (vocals, fiddle). Merging varied backgrounds in Irish and American folk musics, this band’s highly personalized sound emerges in a manner both eclectic and grounded. This is the group's second OCPAG performance

Our Mission...

OCPAG's Ongoing Mission is to...

…connect local youth with the performing arts. We have given over $48,000 in scholarships over the past seven years to deserving students pursuing advanced training in music and theater, and we sponsor a variety of master classes, in-school performances featuring visiting artists and children’s programs. The flagship event is the annual San Juan Chamber MusicFest presented each August under the artistic direction of Max Levinson. We invite you to our upcoming events!

OCPAG is one of the founding members of the Alpenglow Arts Alliance and as such, we work with other arts-related organizations to support each other’s mission.  We serve as partner supporters for the Open Bard Poetry Series and the Ouray Community Chorus.

“As a board member and supporter of OCPAG for over two decades, I can attest that this organization gets better and better. The caliber of events is superb. Much of it is national or world class. Indeed, our whole community can be proud and appreciative that a small, local volunteer non profit is able to achieve what it has. The sheer variety and appeal of our ever-changing list of events is commendable and we do this while keeping ticket prices to a minimum. This, in large part, is due to our local support and generous sponsors. We are also fortunate that our venues are exceptional.”

I sing with Heartbeat, an eight-woman a cappella group. Our group has sung together for 27 years. Heartbeat has performed three concerts for OCPAG over the past 16 years. The experience was great! The arts guild is well-organized and that makes it easy and fun for our group to sing for wonderful and appreciative audiences around Ouray County.
