amazing concerts and students. the tent is a great atmosphere and it is welcoming. a great place to enjoy classical music by some of the best students around. They have a very strong faculty and alumni list. It is also nice to have a picnic and listen from outside.

The Benedict Music tent music festival is a must. YOu can pay to sit inside, or listen outside on the lawn for free. Just don't forget a blanket/chair and stake out a place early for the orchestra events.

Great venue. It looked like there were no bad seats. The artists were great! I enjoyed the outdoors venue at the Snowmass Village better

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

Yes, it is an exhilarating site for a concert like the symphonic one I attended. Management of this nonprofit endeavour was not satisfied to widely advertise and levy the eye-opening price of $76 per ticket --- it keeps out the hoi polloi, not to mention the average musician -- but demanded an additional $8 as Processing Fee before they would...

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.
