The Aspen Music Festival and School offers more than 350 musical events during a eight-week season including symphony, chamber, opera, choral and family concerts.

The Aspen Music Festival and School’s sixty-fifth anniversary season theme will be The New Romantics, which will explore the resurgence of Romantic imagination in music of the late twentieth and early twentyfirst centuries. The Romantic Movement that began in the eighteenth century and dominated the arts in the nineteenth century has evolved and maintained a powerful place in the last forty years among composers, writers, visual artists, choreographers, and architects in all their endeavors.

The Aspen Opera Theater Center will produce Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin, Lowell Liebermann’s The Picture of Dorian Gray, and Bizet’s Carmen.

Maroon Bells 50th Birthday Bash

Start: 8/2/2014 3:00 PM  |  End: 8/2/2014 9:00 PM

Party like it’s 1964!

That was the year that the Wilderness Act established the first 54 wilderness areas, including the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness. This 50th anniversary is a fitting moment to celebrate that bold legacy and to throw a giant, joyful party for our beloved Maroon Bells.

The Maroon Bells Birthday Bash will be a good-old-fashioned, family-friendly party – complete with cake and candles! And given the Bells’ fame, it promises to be something of a reunion for fans from around the state and beyond.

The outdoor festival will run from 3 to 9 p.m. (see schedule) and will feature live music by four bands, an address by author/activist Rick Bass, a Ute Nation ceremony, kids’ activities and wilderness displays.

Advance tickets are just $10 for adults, with kids 12 and under free (and that includes cake!). Parking is also free. The Highlands Alehouse will offer special food and drink deals.
