Imagine being 8,000 feet above sea level in the foothills of the American Rockies—amid coniferous forests and under an azure‑blue sky—basking in the sounds of the fabulous Philadelphia Orchestra! This is just one of the glories of the Bravo! Vail Music Festival, now in its 36th consecutive season in the resort town of Vail, Colorado.
Bravo! Vail is one of the finest summer music festivals in North America, and the Philadelphia Orchestra is just one of four top‑flight orchestras that participated in summer residencies this year. The others included the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic.
Running from June 22 to August 3, this edition of Bravo!
