Live from Packard Hall

Colorado College Summer Music Festival 2020

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

Despite the disruptions caused by the COVID19 pandemic, the Summer Music Festival carried on, albeit in a new and unprecedented format. Our faculty pulled together from all over North America to plan online master classes and creative classes for our fellows, our donors and the CC Community. Many of these classes were recorded; watch them here!
