|Chamber Music at the Steamboat Athletic Club – 1991|
Did you know that Strings Music Festival first began at the Steamboat Athletic Club on the deck of Storm Meadows? Here are some of the favorite memories from that time:
“Playing on the Athletic Club deck and admiring the flattops years ago.”
“Sitting at Slopeside eating dinner and listening to the Strings concert at the same time.” -Karen Linsky
“Walking through the woods to and from the Storm Meadows Athletic Club for concerts.”
The Strings staff was nervous for their first ever concert and hoped at least one person would show up. Imagine their surprise when they peered out the windows to see an audience of 250 people! They even had to find more chairs to accommodate everyone. This was the first time that live classical music was available in Steamboat Springs. Concerts were held at the Steamboat Athletic Club for four years, until the fire martial said that patrons could no longer sit on the roof for concerts.
