VAIL — Bravo! Vail presents several free event series this summer, which aim to make world-class music accessible throughout the Vail Valley. Highlights of the free events include the Free Concert Series, with solo recitals and chamber music performances in intimate settings; a family-friendly event at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater; musical events at local libraries; nighttime entertainment at pubs; and more.

FREE CONCERT SERIES

The Free Concert Series presents hour-long chamber concerts at 1 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday at the Vail Interfaith Chapel, with additional performances at various times and locations on other days of the week.



Pianist Anne-Marie McDermott, Bravo! Vail’s artistic director, kicks off the series on today at 7:30 p.m. with a performance of Schubert’s Piano Sonata No. 21 in B-flat major — written during the last few months of Schubert’s life.

Other performers throughout the series include piano fellows Tomer Gewirtzman and Steven Lin; cellist Yumi Kendall; the Aeolus Quartet; the Dover Quartet; and the Qwinda Woodwind Quintet. Highlights of the repertoire include Beethoven’s “Razumovsky” String Quartet, Bach’s Toccata in E minor, Mozart’s Adagio and Fugue in C minor, the Overture from Rossini’s “The Barber of Seville” and an all-French lineup.



BRAVO! VAIL AFTER DARK

Beginning Friday, July 1, the Bravo! Vail After Dark series kicks off, offering nighttime concerts at the Vail Ale House, Bonfire Brewing and Crazy Mountain Brewing Co. The concerts’ informal settings allow for intimate, interactive experiences between the audience and musicians, as well as lively performances featuring pop and R&B in addition to classical music.

FREE FAMILY CONCERT



On Wednesday, July 13, Bravo! Vail presents its Free Family Concert: the worldwide sensation “Beethoven Lives Upstairs,” based on the popular children’s audio recording and HBO film. Produced in collaboration with Classical Kids Live!, a theatrical and educational family program, “Beethoven Lives Upstairs” tells the fictional story of a boy named Christoph who meets Beethoven when he moves into his family’s home and lives in the bedroom above his.

Musicians from the Colorado-based National Repertory Orchestra, led by Lio Kuokman, assistant conductor of The Philadelphia Orchestra, will play excerpts from Beethoven’s work. The show, which will be held at the Ford Amphitheater, will be preceded by games and activities. An instrument petting zoo — where children can touch, feel and play various orchestral instruments — will also be on site starting at 10 a.m.

LITTLE LISTENERS

Beginning Thursday, June 26, Little Listeners at the Library offers free, fun and informative performances by musicians from resident orchestras and Colorado in area libraries. Locations for these events include Gypsum, Eagle, Avon and Vail public libraries. Library performances will include a musical activity or mini instrument petting zoo for the kids.

SPECIAL EVENT: INUKSUIT

Closing out the 2016 season on Saturday, Aug. 6, Bravo! Vail joins forces with the Aspen Music Festival and School to present Grammy award–winning composer John Luther Adams’ outdoor piece “Inuksuit” during a special event in Maloit Park.

Inuksuit will feature 66 percussionists performing throughout the park. Audience members will walk through the performance, finding themselves immersed in a uniquely cohesive sonic landscape that provides new perspective on what it means to hear and to listen. This event is suitable for all ages.
