2020 Colorado Summer Music Festival Announces Cancellation

The Colorado Music Festival has announced the cancellation of its 2020 Summer Festival – due to the ongoing threat of the COVID-19 virus

The Colorado Music Festival, in Boulder, Colorado, has this week announced the cancellation of its 2020 Summer Festival – due to the ongoing threat of the COVID-19 virus.

Founded in 1976, the annual event was scheduled to take place from the 25th of June to the 1st of August, 2020.

The six week summer concert series will be transitioned to a virtual festival with online performances and discussions to be posted weekly - including concerts by pianist Jan Lisiecki, violinist VC Artist August Hadelich, the St. Lawrence String Quartet, the Juilliard String Quartet and the Takacs Quartet and a scheduled discussion with Composer-in-Residence John Adams.

“Having sustained hope throughout these past months that presenting the Festival would be possible, we now accept that we are unable to ensure the health and safety of our beloved musicians, patrons, housing hosts, volunteers and staff – a responsibility we hold paramount,” Festival Executive Director Elizabeth McGuire has today said.

“While we are faced with the disappointment of canceling this year’s Colorado Music Festival, we are grateful to have the opportunity to offer a virtual festival ... without exception, the musicians I’ve spoken to are eager to participate,” Music Director Peter Oundjian has today said.
