VAIL, Colorado - Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival's early-bird price on its season lawn passes ends today. Prices increase Thursday for several of its season passes, including the Bravo! Green Pass, Transferable Pass and Bach on the Rocks, Bravo!'s social music pass.
"We offer several different lawn-pass options for both visitors and guests," said Nancy Stevens, Bravo!'s ticketing manager.
Each season lawn pass grants the pass holder lawn admission to all Bravo! orchestral concerts at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater. New for 2012, children 15 and younger receive free lawn admission, making Bravo! a fun family night out.
"A season lawn pass is a great way to experience the Bravo! Festival all summer long. Whether it is an evening of Broadway or pops or Mozart's 'Great Mass,' a season pass gives you the option to hear a variety of music," said Carly Winn, Bravo!'s marketing associate. "Pack a picnic, enjoy a bottle of wine, and spend your summer nights listening to classical music."
Bach on the Rocks, presented by West Vail Liquor Mart, is quickly becoming one of the more popular passes, Stevens said. Pass holders get access to the concerts, socialize and network at several mixers, get $10 off bottles of wine at the amphitheater and receive discounts at West Vail Liquor Mart.
"A Bach on the Rocks pass is a tremendous value," Stevens said.
There will be a membership party tonight for Bach on the Rocks at Splendido at the Chateau in Beaver Creek from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Guests can learn more about the pass benefits and sign up at the early-bird rate. Complimentary wine and appetizers will be served. There will be a raffle for all Bach on the Rocks members, including a pair of Liberty Skis, wine, a gym membership to Vail Athletic Club and TV8 interview time.
