Sep 14, 2012 - From staff reportsMichael Lange, a native of Riverton, has joined the Wyoming Arts Council staff as the new community development and arts specialist.
Lange began his love for the arts while playing bass with his high school jazz band. After high school, Lange attended Northwest College in Powell and then the University of Wyoming, receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Music with an emphasis in bass performance.
While an undergraduate, Lange produced two concerts, "Need Culture, 1 night of Photo, Art, and Jazz," and "Jazz From the Archives." Both concerts included original arrangements and music, as well as music performed from the archives of the American Heritage Center.
