Hazel Miller returns to the Beaver Creek stage on Aug. 5 as part of the Beaver Creek Music Experience. The free concerts continue on Wednesdays through Aug. 12.

BEAVER CREEK — After soulful and rockin' performances by The Caleb Dean Band, Von Stomper and Tizer Trio, Beaver Creek Music Experience presented by Alpine Bank lays out three more performances for the summer on Wednesday nights through Aug. 12. Free yoga and an intimate music experience take place every Wednesday in and around Beaver Creek Village.

Starting at 4:30 p.m., yogis of all levels are invited to free outdoor yoga at Centennial Park on the grass next to Buckaroo Express Gondola. Yoga classes last until 5:30 p.m., presented by instructors from The Club at Allegria Spa in Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort and Spa. Some mats will be available for use; bringing your own mat, water bottle and sunscreen is encouraged. If in the case of inclement weather, then the class will be held inside at The Club at Allegria Spa and a maximum of 20 persons can be accommodated, so arriving early is recommended.

Concert Gates Open at 5 p.m.

Concert gates will be open at 5 p.m. on Wednesday for Floridian singer and songwriter Matt Hires, who performs in the heart of Beaver Creek Village by Beaver Creek Ice Rink on the stage. Hires has toured and supported such artists as Needtobreathe, Matchbox Twenty, The Goo Goo Dolls, Paolo Nutini and Eric Hutchinson, and his songs have been placed in popular TV shows such as "Grey's Anatomy," "Private Practice," "Cougartown," "Life Unexpected" and "When in Rome." Hires is constantly putting out new music and was influenced by Dashboard Confessional, The Get Up Kids, Bob Dylan and Tom Petty.

Aug. 5 marks the return of Hazel Miller to Beaver Creek Ice Rink as she shows off her stunning, powerful and moving voice to the sounds of blues, jazz, pop and gospel. Miller rose to the top of the music scene in Louisville, Kentucky, and has taken Colorado by storm, with 5280 Magazine readers making her their choice for best band in 2010, among many other awards including one of the top 150 people who make Denver a better place to live, bestowed by the mayor in 2008. Since moving to Colorado in 1984, she has regularly performed with Big Head Todd and the Monsters.

For the last performance of the summer on Aug. 12, The Crane Wives from Grand Rapids, Michigan, return to Creekside Park in Beaver Creek with their homegrown indie-folk-rock sounds. Combining strong poetic vocals, bass guitar, percussion and a three-part harmony, they cascade a unique, dynamic sound. They received local critical acclaim for their first two self-produced albums and are working on another album. Their music is said to traverse innovative territory ranging from quiet ballads to danceable grooves.
