Because a Little Distance Can't Stop the Music......

Despite the disruptions caused by the COVID19 pandemic, the Summer Music Festival will go on, albeit in a new and unprecedented format. Our faculty have pulled together from all over North America to plan online master classes and creative classes for our fellows, and our donors and CC Community members are welcome to observe. You'll find a full schedule of what's happening, with links so that you can join us, by clicking on the blue "Summer Music Festival 2020" button, above.

The Colorado College Summer Music Festival is thrilled to present
