Our 34th Season is on the horizon, and we are gearing up for a vibrant summer of music in the beautiful Vail Valley. We remain flexible and optimistic as the season approaches, and we appreciate your patience as we finalize our programming.

Bravo! Vail Music Festival showcases four phenomenal orchestras over the course of the season: Academy of St Martin in the Fields, Dallas Symphony Orchestra, The Philadelphia Orchestra, and New York Philharmonic.  

As in summers past, chamber music will play a vital role this year, with programs highlighting both old favorites and contemporary works. The return of free concerts throughout the summer will bring no-cost programs to the community in an approachable way.

Schedule:
NEW YORK PHILHARMONIC STRING QUARTET

NEW YORK PHILHARMONIC QUARTET

MENDELSSOHN String Quartet No. 2 in A minor, Op. 13
SCHUMANN Piano Quintet in E-flat major, Op. 44

Vail’s artistic director for Schumann’s groundbreaking piano quintet, which combined the forces of piano with string quartet for the first time, pioneering a new genre of chamber music "suspended between private and public spheres." Mendelssohn’s early work pays homage to Beethoven’s own groundbreaking late string quartets.
