First Musician to Perform At Red Rocks Needs to Be Inducted Into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame
Pietro Satriano was the first musician to perform at the Red Rocks and he was also the musical director at Elitch Gardens for about 20 years. He has never been inducted into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame or the Red Rocks Hall of Fame. He was the first performer at Red Rocks on May 31, 1906. The City of Denver has had more than 100 years to induct him and they have chosen not to do so. Honoring historical musicians and acknowledging contributions that Italian-American people have made is important!
