Aspen Music Festival, July 1 - Aug. 22, 2021
The Aspen Music Festival & School is planning for a spectacular return to live musical events during summer 2021. Organizers are deep into preparations, which include reimagining procedures to ensure that summer 2021 is safe, distanced, and full of live music.
"Our open-air Benedict Music Tent and spacious Bucksbaum Campus allow for significant distancing and give us confidence we can teach, rehearse, create, and perform at the highest levels," said Music Director Robert Spano and President/CEO Alan Fletcher in a written statement. "Some of the procedural changes will mean a different scope and scale, especially for the number of students we can house and audience members we can seat, but we have full plans for meaningful teaching on all instruments, and for daily performances, including orchestral concerts, multiple recitals each week, faculty chamber music, opera presentations, and more."
Tickets will go on sale in late spring 2021, and more details will be posted on AspenMusicFestival.com.
