Colorado Symphony Orchestra celebrates Mozart in Vail Valley

Vail Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado
Special to the Vail Daily/Mark T. OslerVail Valley music: The Colorado Symphony Orchestra will celebrate Mozart during its performance at the Vilar Center in Beaver Creek tonight.

VAIL, Colorado – The Vail Vilar Performing Arts Center in Colorado’s Vail Valley was designed more than a decade ago as an acoustically pristine theater for classical music.

Tonight, the Colorado Symphony Orchestra brings its Mozart celebration to the Beaver Creek stage led by conductor Bernard Labadie and featuring pianist Benedetto Lupo.

“Littman’s Künstler Theater in Munich provided inspiration for the Vilar Center,” Vilar Center Executive Director Kris Sabel says. “The wood-paneled columns, walls and ceilings are all designed to provide perfect acoustics for hearing every note, every string, every intricate detail of a composition.

“Especially when hearing the timeless works of Mozart, the Vilar Center is truly one of the most exceptional venues in the nation.”

The orchestra will be joined by pianist Benedetto Lupo. After winning the bronze medal in the 1989 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, Lupo made debuts with several major American orchestras, as well as chamber appearances with the Tokyo String Quartet. His New York City recital debut at Alice Tully Hall followed in 1992, the same year he won the Terence Judd International Award, which in turn led to his debut at London’s Wigmore Hall.

Tickets for Colorado Symphony Orchestra’s Mozart Celebration are $55-$70 and are available at, by calling 888-920-ARTS or in person at the box office in Beaver Creek.
