Season 26 has come to a close and it was another fabulous summer of music in Steamboat Springs. Here are some of our favorite moments of the season.
Eighty-nine year-old piano legend Menahem Pressler performed in the two opening classical concerts of the season. Here he is behind the scenes, rehearsing with Music Director Andrés Cárdenes.
One of our Artist-in-Residence groups this year was the C Street Brass, and they were a huge hit. The community, musicians and staff all loved them, and we’re hoping they return next year! Here they are playing at the collaborative concert with Perry-Mansfield at Colorado Mountain College.
Kenny Loggins turned the Strings Music Pavilion into a rock and roll hall. He played all the favorite hits, and the crowd was up and dancing!
Violinist Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR) performed a multifaceted show with a pianist, a drummer, string quintet Sybarite5, award-winning vocalist Nnenna Freelon, the Steamboat Hula Hoop Troupe and local favorite DJ Also Starring. But the crowd favorite was when 13 year-old Steamboat violinist Jacob VanDerWerf performed one of DBR’s Hip Hop Studies and Etudes.
This year we set a record for the fastest selling out concert ever – Lyle Lovett and His Large Band sold out within four hours of tickets going on sale! If you were lucky enough to score tickets to this concert, you were treated to a full stage and a packed house. It was a great way to close out the season. We hope to see you again next year!
