April Update

April 2, 2020

As I’ve witnessed the impact of COVID-19 unfold upon our musical community worldwide, I find it most compelling to see musicians band together to support each other, share each other’s uplifting performances, and serve as beacons of happiness and compassion to one another and the world.

As we approach the scheduled opening of the Colorado Music Festival season on June 25th, we hope to have the opportunity to rally our community together in celebration of music and these musicians who have lost so much. As of now, we are working towards the goal of opening the 2020 season as scheduled. We will continue to keep a close eye on updates from local authorities regarding public gatherings and will have a better understanding of the potential impact on concerts and events as we get closer to the summer.

I hope to be able to come together with you this summer in Boulder to celebrate our shared humanity through the power and love of music. But of course, your health and safety as well as the health and safety of our musicians and staff will always come first. Thank you for your continued support.
