Breckenridge Music Festival

From Artistic Director & Conductor Steven Schick


Come Alive with Breck Music.

In celebration of the 40th Breckenridge Music Festival, we are not imagining how we will return to business-as-usual after the pandemic; we are eager to embrace a new future, with new music, new projects and a new sense of dedication to our listeners. We are eager for a new awakening!

Built around themes of optimism and new beginnings, we are creating new initiatives as well as spiffing up much-loved traditional aspects of past festivals. We’ll be more mobile, more flexible and more inventive than ever before.

On our new AirStage—a high-tech retrofitted Airstream trailer with a built-in stage—we’ll present small ensemble versions of our innovative Tiny Porches and Family concerts. And on the stage of the Riverwalk Center, we’ll offer our trademark combination of beloved classical music and new work. You’ll hear a stellar ensemble of 15 professional musicians from across the country perform lots of music that you already know and love from Brahms and Wagner to Debussy and Stravinsky. And you’ll make some new composer friends from Astor Piazzolla to Steve Reich and Valerie Coleman to Samuel Coleridge Taylor.

We’re not going back; we’re going forward! Join us for our 2021 season—An Awakening!
