August 4 -6, 2010 | Aspen Music Festival on Colorado Public Radio

This week, Colorado Public Radio heads to the Roaring Fork Valley to bring you the sounds of the Aspen Music Festival!  Every year some of the most venerable performers in classical music head to Aspen to play for audiences under the Tent, to teach up and coming student musicians, and to relax in the mountain air.  Monika Vischer will be broadcasting her show from the festival this Wednesdsay, Thursday and Friday. She's also sending web postcards from Aspen - see here for the latest postcard!
