Scott Yoo, conductor
The Colorado College Summer Music Festival’s 36th season, scheduled to take place from June 7-27, 2020, promised to be yet another exceptional experience. The fellows selected for the orchestra were outstanding, the planned collaborations were unique and star-studded, and our eminent faculty were inspired not only to teach, but to present an exciting season of works old and new, a commissioned piece, and a few Colorado premieres. So it is with heavy hearts that we announce the cancellation of the Festival’s 2020 season. Given the global nature of our program, with fellows and faculty coming in from all over the world, we feel it would be irresponsible to continue plans in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. The health and safety of our fellows, faculty, and our local festival family who support our endeavors is of primary importance to us, and so we rally our enthusiasm to focus upon plans for our 2021 season with, we hope, some interim events to allow you to help us keep that enthusiastic momentum going.
We will try and answer some of your most common questions below, but we still encourage you to reach out and stay in touch if you have any questions, kudos, or concerns. Please be aware that the festival staff are working remotely, so there may be a delay in replying to you as we work out what our next steps will be. We will do our best to keep you informed as we navigate the process.
Be sure to mark your calendars now for our 2021 season
