Melody of Our History: FoCo Concerts for Kids

In 1859 Antoine Janis and his Sioux wife, First Elk Woman, moved to Colorado, settling in what is now Laporte. He worked as a farmer, translator, for-hire guide, gold prospector, fur-trapper, trader, and father to 16 children. In 1878, the U.S. government forced the relocation of all Oglala Sioux to the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. Janis accompanied his wife and family to the reservation, where he died in 1890.

This summer, the Fort Collins Chamber Music Society, funded in part with a grant from Fort Fund, will present “Melody of Our History: FoCo Concerts for Kids,” a series of children’s concerts, featuring a newly-commissioned piece based on the story of Janis and First Elk Woman. Also featured will be a composition by a student at the University of Wyoming about the local legend, Annie the Railroad Dog.
