Crested Butte Music Festival
WHAT DISTINGUISHES THIS FESTIVAL
The Crested Butte Music Festival presents an annual festival of diverse music, opera and dance performed by outstanding artists, to inspire a greater appreciation of these art forms, and to help develop the performers of tomorrow.
FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS
Our mission is to enrich, educate, and inspire our community with diverse art forms that celebrate the human spirit. Now in its 21st year, CBMF presents outstanding performances in diverse musical genres with accompanying hands-on educational programs each summer. Last year, over 130 world-class artists travelled to Crested Butte from all over the nation to perform a range from beloved masterpieces to new works. As a result, residents of and visitors to rural Gunnison County have access to performances and programs typically available in a major metropolitan area. Local outreach efforts include collaborations with the music and art curriculum at the Crested Butte Community School, the Frank Vignola Guitar Camp, and The Bluegrass Kids Camp. The 2016 Crested Butte Opera Studio featured 12 developing performers out of 400 applicants to receive professional coaching and be cast members of La bohème.
This year marks the beginning of two new initiatives: The Orchestral Fellows Program provides conservatory and music school students the opportunity to perform orchestral and chamber music concerts side-by-side with the professional musicians in the Festival Orchestra. In the Chamber Music Intensive, serious amateurs get coaching from world-class musicians and get ample performance experience.
