You know the feeling... close your eyes and recollect the first time a live orchestra swept you our of your seat to a place of peace, beauty, and inspiration.

The graceful power of classical music has inspired us to present the region’s premier summer music festival featuring the highest caliber of musicians from across the country for nearly 40 years. Each summer, we delight audiences with the richness of classical music, while our year-round music education programs support local music teachers and students alike.

Please help us share this special experience with others. Now more than ever, Music in the Mountains offers unparalleled opportunities to engage our community and celebrate classical music surrounded by the beauty of Southwest Colorado.

Your investment in this cultural treasure keeps our collective gaze focused on a better, brighter future for everyone.
