Bravo! presents Casual Classics in Gypsum
Vail, CO Colorado
VAIL, Colorado – Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival presents a free concert in Gypsum Monday night.
Monday’s 7 p.m. Casual Classics performance, the second one of the season, is at the Gypsum Town Hall. The performance is hosted by Bravo!’s Artistic Director Eugenia Zukerman, who will be conducting conversation and playing music with the Bravo! Young Artist String Quartet from the Curtis Institute of Music, the Vuillame String Quartet.
The program includes works by Mozart and Haydn. This performance is free and tickets are not required. Seating is on a first come, first served basis.
All summer long, Bravo! presents free music education events throughout the Eagle Valley as part of the festival’s community education program, Music Matters. The programs give people different opportunities to get involved with music.
“We offer these programs so that children of all ages, the young and young-at-heart, can get a little closer to the music and experience up close what it’s like to be a professional classical musician,” said Liz Campbell, Bravo’s education director.
Some events are specifically designed for kids to come in and get their hands on the music, such as Live @ the Library and Instrument Petting Zoos. Other Music Matters events have been programmed to serve the adult community, such as the free Casual Classics concert series, where performances are held in intimate educational settings, bringing the audience members directly into the world of the performers.
“You’re never too old to learn something new, especially when it comes to music. The musicians love these opportunities to share a bit about what they do with the audiences and open people’s eyes to the wonders of classical music,” said Campbell. “It’s important to continue the education of our communities so classical music can stay alive and prosper.”
