We regret to inform you that, in light of the COVID-19 health pandemic, we have decided to cancel our May 1 Intermezzo concert with the Ying Quartet, as well as the season ticket pickup party that was to accompany it. We remain hopeful that our June season will continue as planned, while the college monitors the situation closely. We will keep you updated as things develop. Thank you for your understanding.

Be sure to mark your calendars now for our upcoming, 2020 season

2020 Summer Season: June 7-27

The Colorado College Summer Music Festival is an intensive three-week program for advanced student musicians who work with world-class faculty to further develop their musical talents.
