CPR Classical’s 2014 SummerFest concert series features performances from Colorado’s classical music festivals.
The concert series opens June 28 with a live broadcast of the Central City Opera’s production of Mozart’s “The Marriage of Figaro” and ends August 17 with Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 live from the Aspen Music Festival.
It’s our most expansive lineup to date, also featuring performances from the Colorado Music Festival and the Colorado College Summer Music Festival. In addition to our Saturday night broadcasts, this year SummerFest also includes Tuesday night chamber music performances from the Aspen Music Festival and Bravo! Vail.
And every day this summer on CPR Classical we'll feature performances from these and other classical festivals around the state, including the National Repertory Orchestra, Breckenridge Music Festival, Strings Music Festival and others.
