“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

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.

“Wonderful event and venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

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.

“Process This”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

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 hand you your ticket and modest place among the thousand auditors. Perhaps the many benefactors of the festival made their wealth by the piratical methods of your neighborhood Studebaker dealer and cling to those methods out of sentiment even in their philanthropic retirement.
