Not only in the beautiful benedict tent, musicians were playing on the corners of the streets, restaurants, churches. If you love music, go when the music festival is ongoing. The tickets are not expensive either.

Coming to ski in Aspen, there's no need to miss out on a taste of the remarkable music festival. The winter chamber music festival in Harris Hall brings top artists to perform. We heard the Pacifica Quartet play Mendelssohn, Weinberg, and Schumann. Spectacular.
