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.

The Aspen Music Festival does a wonderful job with their students. The opera they presented, La Traviata, was beautiful with lovely voices and great sets and costumes. The full orchestra concert on Friday and Sunday are exceptionally well received.

The festival had been a long-time bucket-list item and we scheduled our trip around the programs. An annual event from late June to mid-August with daily programs beginning early afternoon each day through highlighted performances in the evening. For the most part, these are students...More

Beautiful music and atmosphere. Buy tickets or sit outside for free at the Benedict Music tent, surrounded by gorgeous Aspen trees. The musicians are students, but their talent makes this seem to be a professional symphony. Very enjoyable experience. Highly recommend it.

Most cities do not have the kind of programming one can see at the Aspen Music Festival. The level of performance is outstanding and a tribute to the teachers at the school. It is one of the best places to be in the summer.

The Aspen Music Festival finale was The Damnation of Faust. It was superb. The musicians, choral group and soloists were expressive and transforming. We look forward to next season.
