If you are thinking about attending a Strings Music Festival show this week, here are my top 10 reasons why you should.
Twenty-five years after Strings Music Festival's start, it is my pleasure to welcome you to this year’s season. I look forward to sharing with you the upcoming music and musicians of Strings each week.
The Modern Storytelling performances Wednesday and Saturday bring contemporary music, dance, song, narration and a multimedia presentation you won’t want to miss. Michael Kaeshammer also returns to Strings for a popular boogie-woogie piano concert.
Grammy award winner Shawn Colvin also on tap for Week 3
Things are heating up for Strings Music Festival’s summer season, with performances by established and rising stars, including a multiple Grammy award winner, innovative composer/performers and prize-winning violinists and pianists. On Friday, Shawn Colvin visits the Strings Music Pavilion for the first time.
Strings Music Festival’s biggest weekend of the summer has arrived. With concerts throughout the week and weekend ranging from country to rock to Broadway, we’ll surely have you singing and dancing along with us. For our bicycle enthusiasts, don’t miss the Strings Kitchen and Garden Tour.
Strings Music Festival’s first week exploded with three sold-out shows. With more than 2,000 people visiting the Strings Music Pavilion, you don’t want to miss out on the music. This week, we’ve got something for everyone with a free concert at the Yampa River Botanic Park, juggling, a night of orchestra, “Girls from the North Country” and “Ferdinand the Bull.”
With the summer solstice behind us, spring is over and the season of Strings is just ahead. This summer, the eight-week Strings Music Festival features more than 60 concerts and events, and the performances start this week. The season officially opens with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra on Friday.
