Through collaborative partnerships, Bravo! Vail shares the beauty of classical music with audiences who could otherwise not experience the Festival.
Bravo! Vail partnered with Roundup River Ranch during the 2016 Festival to present a program for children suffering from serious illnesses in the safety of the Roundup River Ranch camp.
Artistic Director Anne-Marie McDermott and violinist Chad Hoopes performed for the campers and answered questions about music, passion, and goals. An instrument petting zoo followed the performance allowing campers to experience numerous instruments up-close.
A new partnership in 2016 with the Vail Valley Medical Center brought orchestra members in to perform for patients and families twice during the summer.
Musicians performed in the lobby of the hospital for doctors, nurses, staff, and visitors, followed by mini-performances in individual patients' rooms.
