“Awesome Acoustics!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

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.

“Music is in the Air!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

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!

“Chamber music par excellence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

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

“world class listening in the mountains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

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)

“Good venue for smaller crowds vs. Benedict Tent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

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