The Aspen Music Festival is a world class festival with performers from all over the world presenting an eclectic collection of music. The Festival structure has walls that open to the outdoors making on the lawn picnics a must do! The Festival also has it's share of management and performance intrigues that give it an additional edge.

Worth the travel from almost anywhere, especially when coupled with a stay in a great hotel such as the St Regis Residence. The weather can change quickly, but usually it is sunny and warm during the day and cool and clear in the evenings at this time of year and the stars are out in force - both on the... More

The Music Festival was a wonderful experience. Highly recommended to people who love classical music. Hotels can be expensive, but worth a few nights to enjoy the outstanding performances of the up and coming musicians of the world.

We returned on Tuesday afternoon from a wonderful week in Aspen. The weather, scenery, and especially the humongous talent that we saw/heard at the recitals, rehearsals, opera, and concerts presented by all of these mostly young students were all beyond spectacular. After their performances, I especially enjoyed chatting with these musicians as I noticed them walking in Aspen or riding... More

A wonderful theater with first rate musicians. Go to the Saturday rehearsals, more casual and much more affordable.

We attended the last performance of the summer and were treated to a wonderful selection and a staggeringly amazing performance, especially the Beethoven's 9th. The chorus was just fabulous, as were all the musicians.
