In summer 2020, the AMFS presents a virtual festival with all fresh, new content presented over eight weeks. Events include recitals, teaching insights, panel discussions, seminars, and a triumphant live tribute to our Music Director Robert Spano on Sunday, July 5. Many are live with an opportunity to be in the moment with the performer; some offer the chance to ask questions via the chat function. All are FREE. See all events on the Calendar.
Let us continue to be together around music this summer. We may be safely distanced for the time being, but we still hope to “see you at the Tent!”
Founded in 1949, the Aspen Music Festival and School is regarded as one of the top classical music festivals in the United States, noted both for its concert programming and its musical training of mostly young-adult music students. The typical eight-week summer season includes more than 400 classical music events—including concerts by five orchestras, solo and chamber music performances, fully staged opera productions, master classes, lectures, and children’s programming—and brings in 100,000 audience members. In the winter, the AMFS presents a small series of recitals and Metropolitan Opera Live in HD screenings.
