Aspen Music Festival and School

Founded during the same era as Aspen's ski areas, the Aspen Music Festival and School has brought high culture to the high country for nearly seven decades. It's regarded as one of the top classical music festivals in the nation -- lauded for its concerts and educational programs for young-adult musicians -- as well as one of the favored Aspen summer activities for locals and visitors alike.

The summer season runs for eight weeks and includes more than 400 classical music events attended by more than 100,000 audience members. Events include orchestral concerts, solo and chamber music performances, opera productions, masters classes, lectures and children's programming.

New this summer, guests of Frias Properties who book four nights or more receive up to four complimentary tickets to a scheduled performance in the acoustically renowned Benedict Music Tent or Harris Concert Hall.

This package is subject to availability and offered for new reservations only. Additional restrictions, like minimum-night stays, may apply. Concert tickets are valid for any regular season programming. Collaborations, special events, and operas are not included.
