Special to the Herald

Before the San Juan Symphony’s opening concerts Oct. 3 and 4, Music Director Arthur Post will host two preview evenings today and Wednesday. Both one-hour programs are free and open to the public.

At 7 p.m. today in the Durango Public Library, Post will summarize the season and discuss the theme. He’ll be joined by two actors who will present some of the stories. Terry Swan, a retired Air Force colonel with a long-standing passion for theater and experience as an actor-manager, will read the Brothers Grimm story “The Singing Bone.” Then, he and his wife, Dinah Swan, an actor-playwright who retired from Fort Lewis College after 25 years of teaching, will present several stories from The Arabian Nights. Both coincide with San Juan Symphony programs. This is the first in the library’s new Spoken Word series.

At 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Henry Strater Theatre, Post will discuss the music from “Lovers and Dreamers,” the first concert of the season. Snacks and a cash bar will be available.
