Making an Impact Through Music

Our organization delivers vital programs to our community through both the Colorado Music Festival and its education arm the Center for Musical Arts, a year-round community music school. 2022-23 program highlights reflect our commitment to championing a fully equitable and inclusive environment while using music to improve lives in the most authentic and meaningful ways.

The Festival continued to celebrate the underrepresented voices of women composers and people of color by commissioning groundbreaking works such as Wang Jie’s Flying on the Scaly Backs of Our Mountains. Our live, world-premiere performance reached over 1.1 million listeners on National Public Radio’s Performance Today.

The Festival’s international reputation for excellence resulted in articles in the New York Times and BBC Music Magazine highlighting the festival and our beautiful Colorado Chautauqua home.

The Festival Fellows program continues to offer eight aspiring musicians from diverse backgrounds orchestral and chamber music performance opportunities with valuable networking and coaching from, Peter Oundjian, guest artists, and orcehstra musicians.

The Festival worked with VetTix (veterans), Circle of Care (seniors), and Marshall Fire families to provide complimentary tickets to over 1,000 community members.
