The region’s most talented and perhaps underappreciated performers graced the stage of the Community Concert Hall at Fort Lewis College last Saturday evening for “Spotlight to Stardom,” the Four Corners first official talent search. Eighteen acts dazzled and entertained a crowded auditorium full of supporters who came out in full force for the show, a benefit for the concert hall. Twelve year-old Quinn Kuntz, of Durango, won first place and took home $1,000 for his original theatrical performance “The Janitor.” Second place went to the acoustic trio from Durango, Formula 151. The Hot Strings from Pagosa Springs took home third with their original score “The Ghost of the Leopard.”
