Colorado College established its first summer music program in the late 1880's. Since then, a succession of brilliant performers and gifted student musicians have been summer guests of the college. Former students include the Concertmaster of the English Chamber Orchestra, Concertmaster (and the Assistant Concertmaster) of the Spanish Radio Television Symphony Orchestra as well as principal wind positions in the Atlanta Symphony, Houston Symphony and San Francisco Opera.
The Summer Music Festival is made possible by the generous support of many foundations, corporations and lovers of chamber music. Please help the Colorado College Summer Music Festival continue the tradition of offering chamber music of the highest quality and make a donation today. Donors to the Summer Music Festival receive an early invitation to order season and individual concert tickets as well as invitations to special events.
While Colorado College supports the Summer Music Festival with in-kind donations of rehearsal and performance spaces, we are dependent on organizations, foundations and individual supporters to ensure the continued success of the program.
