At Strings, we strive to provide music for audiences of all ages to enhance the cultural, educational, and entertainment experiences of the community of Northwest Colorado and its visitors. In keeping with our mission, we are pleased to offer 60% of our programming free to the community, including a variety of programs year-round. Many are offered in partnership with other community organizations. All these programs and free events are possible thanks to the support of our generous donors.

Music on the Green

Strings is proud to partner with the Yampa River Botanic Park to offer this free outdoor concert series. Music lovers of all ages are invited! Grab a coffee from your favorite local coffee shop and take a leisurely stroll through the stunning gardens while live music fills the air. With concerts lasting just 45 minutes, it’s the perfect way to enjoy a summer morning.

Join us Wednesday mornings from 10:00 to 10:45. June 26 through August 7.

Join us on August 14 and August 21 for our Music on the Green Evening Celebrations! The season finale features live music from Deer Creek Sharp Shooters and food trucks, making it a perfect way to end the summer! 

*All concerts take place at the Yampa River Botanic Park (1000 Pamela Lane, Steamboat Springs).

Senior Outreach

Programmed for our older residents, Strings’ Young Artists in Residence have performed concerts throughout Routt County at Senior Nutrition Sites and Assisted and Full Care Living Facilities. These programs feature movements from the delightful quartet repertoire of the masters and refreshing commentary by the musicians.

Reaching seniors from age 65 to 100, this program brings great music to those who cannot come to the Strings Music Pavilion.
