BRAVO! VAIL MUSIC BOX

Presented by the Sturm Family and ANB Bank

Bravo! Vail Music Box

Front Porch Serenades


The Bravo Vail Music Box is an innovative concept created in response to the demonstrated desire for music performances that are safe, socially distanced, and of the highest artistic caliber. The mobile stage, custom designed and built for Bravo! Vail is designed to be acoustically sound, easy to transport and set up, and aesthetically aligned with the Bravo! Vail brand.

Designed for solo piano and chamber music ensembles, we will return to our roots as a chamber music festival this summer. The Bravo! Vail Music Box will allow the Festival to offer concerts in small, controlled locations while following guidelines related to social distancing and gathering sizes. With this mobile stage, we will serve our community and fulfill our mission of enriching people’s lives through the power of music this summer and beyond.

In appreciation of your generous philanthropic support of Bravo! Vail, we want to bring the mobile stage to you, so you may host a Front Porch Serenade at your home or in your neighborhood! The mobile stage can be placed in your driveway or a neighborhood common area for a live performance featuring either a solo recital or small ensemble of amazing musicians. You and your invited guests – your family, friends, neighbors, and/or other Bravo! Vail patrons – will enjoy beautiful music in a safe, appropriately distanced setting.

If you have any questions or to discuss this concept further, please contact Jason Denhart, Vice President of Philanthropy, at jdenhart@bravovail.org or 970.331.1211 for more information. You can also read Frequently Asked Questions included below.  

Thank you for your continued and most generous support of Bravo! Vail.  Because of you, we are able to bring music to the valley this summer. On behalf the of people whose lives will be impacted by your support – THANK YOU!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

How many people can attend? The capacity will be determined by several factors, including the Eagle County Guideline’s for events, your preference as the host, the size of the space, and other considerations. We can work together on the size and guest list for your event.
 

Who creates the guest list? You may invite guests of your choosing. However, you do not have to invite guests yourselves, as Bravo! Vail would be happy to coordinate an invitation list with you. If you prefer, Bravo! Vail will facilitate the invitation of guests and update you regularly on responses. We encourage you to invite other Bravo donors so more members of the Bravo family may enjoy your hosted Front Porch Serenade.

If I invite my own guests, does guest information need to be provided to Bravo?  Yes. Several reasons we request the guest information are:

  1. Bravo! Vail would like to personally thank all guests for attending the event.
  2. All guests will be required to sign a waiver.
  3. In the instance that one of the guests tests positive for COVID-19 following the event, Bravo! Vail will need the guest list, should we need to contact them.
