2017 Aspen Music Festival
As the trees begin to change and the snow starts to melt, it’s time to start thinking about your Aspen Snowmass summer plans. Like summers past there will be fun family events, unique and engaging intellectual activities and like every summer since 1949, the Aspen Music Festival & School (AMFS). The Aspen Music Festival & School is regarded as one of the top classical music festivals in the US, renowned for both its musical training and concert programming. This year the festival will be exploring the theme of “enchantment.”
Alan Fletcher, current president and CEO of the AMFS said, “This summer we look deeply at the magical, transformative power of music” and when you view the intelligently curated mix of concerts it becomes clear that this summer the Aspen Music Festival will do exactly that. Works for the 2017 program include Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade (July 26), Ravel’s opera L’Enfant et les sortileges (July 21), Mozart’s Overture to The Magic Flute (July 7) and many more. Each piece has been specifically selected in conjunction with its conductor, the performers and the festival curators to explore the festival theme of enchantment, a fitting topic for summer in Aspen Snowmass.
As these concerts almost always sell out it’s best to begin planning early to make sure you can attend the shows that have captured your attention and stay in the Aspen Snowmass lodging of your choice. Fortunately, Stay Aspen Snowmass has made this easy with the inclusion of Aspen Music Festival tickets in any all-inclusive summer vacation package.
