The Denver Post proclaimed this warm, woody hall "the Carnegie of the Rockies" when it opened in 1993.The venue is home to the Festival's Winter Music recital series, which runs through the winter season. In the summer, the world's top classical musicians take the stage almost daily during the eight-week season. « less

Great events in a fine venue. The acoustics are justifiably famous. Backstage tour was very interesting and worthwhile.

Visiting Aspen during the summer, I attended several concerts in this wonderful hall. I was skeptical when I saw that the Hall was underground... It did not feel in the least bit claustrophobic or basement-y. Voice, strings, piano, a small contemporary ensemble - all sounded marvelous whether I sat in row three or near the back of the hall.

Wonderful venue in the Mountains of Aspen. During Music festival season, you can buy tickets from $10.00 for chamber music to $75 and up for a full concert evening. Many locals bring a picnic and blanket and bunk outside the tent to listen to the music for free. It's all good!

Great hall for intimate listening. We also some time ago saw a documentary movie there, followed by discussion with the filmmakers.

Acclaimed acoustics as well as top ranked performers - an urban experience and you get to walk out and look up at the mountains - fabulous ( or in the tent as well)

Indoor venue for solo performers and small groups. Sound and visibility are excellent from anywhere in the hall.

Was the for the Aspen Music festival. Seating is comfortable. Had trouble understanding the lyrics the singer was singing. First I thought it was me but other people in the audience felt the same way.

Lovely hall by the main tent. Mostly for chamber music. Excellent acoustics. Every seat is a good seat.

We heard the Emerson Quartet in this warm, intimate hall that seats 500. The acoustics are perfect for chamber music and no doubt for any other performances. The hall itself is underground (there is an elevator for access) so there's no outside interference. The grounds are beautiful. Well worth a visit.

Small concert hall next to the music tent. We were there for a violin master class, so the hall was only 20% full. The decor is kind of "cold", but the acoustics are great (again with only a partially full audience).
