• Get special access to festival events and musicians.
• Enjoy opportunities to visit Snowmass Village and Aspen, ride a gondola up Ajax Mountain and more.

Program Notes

The 2015 season Music Festival theme is "Dreams of Travel" and explores works trading on cultural odysseys. Composers have long enriched their music through encounters with other cultures. Whether through imagination or their own actual travels, they evoke or invoke the unusual, the exotic, the different, and the exceptional. Travels to distant lands, in dreams or in reality, bring new and colorful sounds, exotic instruments, songs and dance rhythms, and the adaptation of memories to composers as different as Bach, Verdi, Debussy, Ravel, and Golijov. Full program details will be announced in February on www.aspenmusicfestival.com This learning adventure is one of our FLEX programs. It offers a more flexible schedule than our traditional programs and includes ample independent time and several meals on your own.
