Saxophonist Timothy McAllister’s Triumphant Return to the Festival

On July 13, 2023, saxophonist Timothy McAllister returns to the Colorado Music Festival to perform composer-in-residence John Corigliano’s fascinating and demanding Triathlon. McAllister made a big splash with the Festival in 2022 performing John Adams’ City Noir. In celebration of McAllister’s triumphant return, enjoy this 2022 Tiny Rock Concert featuring the saxophone great himself, one of the Festival’s most popular videos of all time.
