About Bravo! Vail
The Bravo! Vail Music Festival brings world-renowned musicians to picturesque venues throughout the Vail Valley for six weeks, drawing music lovers from around the world. The only festival in North America to host four of the world’s finest orchestras in a single season, Bravo! Vail’s 2018 season features residencies with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, The Philadelphia Orchestra, and the New York Philharmonic – plus the London-based Academy of St Martin in the Fields, which, in 2016, became the first international orchestra to perform at the Festival. In addition, internationally acclaimed chamber artists and soloists perform a wide array of unique and carefully curated chamber music programs.
As stewards of exceptional orchestral and chamber music in the Vail Valley, Bravo! Vail is proud to continue the tradition of providing the very best education programs to youth and adults. The After-School Piano Program, Little Listeners @ the Library, the Instrument Bank, Free Family Concerts, Spring Family Concerts, and Instrument Petting Zoos provide education and enrichment programs to area children all year long. In addition, an extensive series of Free Concerts, Pre-concert lectures, Bravo! Vail After Dark, Chamber Musicians in Residence, open rehearsals, master classes and internships reach thousands more youth and adults throughout the Vail Valley every summer.
