MUSIC

One of the best ways to experience the culture of a place is to take in live music. Plan to catch live music from the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra, take in a performance from Opera Wyoming, attend the Summer Concert Series at David Street Station or check out one of the city’s music-filled events, like NIC Fest, the Beartrap Summer Festival or Harmony, Hops & Hope.
