Strings Music Festival – Steamboat Springs, CO

As we wrap up our 25th Anniversary Season with Asleep at the Wheel this Friday, I thought I’d take a moment and give you a snapshot of this summer. Thank you to all who shared this exceptional season with us.

MASS Ensemble ~ June 30
William Close came to Strings Music Festival in the midst of his America’s Got Talent competition to play the strings of the giant Earth Harp. After performing here, Howie Mandel of America’s Got Talent said, “I would pay any amount of money to see that show.” And just think – some of you got to see it for free!

Free Community Day ~ July 1
1,000 community members showed up for four hours of music and dancing with Earth Harp, Drum Orb, African Dance and Drum Ensemble, and Jasmir Belly Dancers performances.

Tesla Quartet
This year our young Artist-in-Residence quartet was the Tesla Quartet, and we enjoyed hearing them play at Music on the Green, outreach performances, chamber concerts, and orchestra concerts.

Kitchen and Garden Tour ~ July 21

We had the biggest ever Kitchen and Garden Tour this year with 503 participants and a gorgeous day for touring seven Steamboat homes.

Chris Botti ~ July 27
In the most magical concert of the summer, Chris Botti and his talented band wooed the audience with pieces ranging from smooth jazz, to soul, to classical.

k.d. lang and the siss boom bang ~ August 3

With a show like the Pavilion has never seen before, k.d. lang blew away the crowd with her heartfelt vocals and powerful stage presence.

Classical Finale Orchestra ~ August 4

The classical season ended with a full stage of orchestra musicians and Wendy Chen at the piano.
