To ensure the safety of our patrons, artists, volunteers, and staff, Bravo! Vail announces the cancellation of all 2020 Festival events as originally scheduled. Bravo! Vail is committed to its mission of enriching people’s lives through the power of music and is therefore working on creative and safe ways to bring music to the Vail Valley community this summer. We hope to update this announcement with reimagined 2020 offerings in the coming weeks.
We rely on the significant ticket revenue the Festival generates each year, and we hope that you will consider making a gift today to help support Bravo! Vail's mission of enriching people's lives through the power of music. Please click here to donate.
Dear Music Lovers,
For more than 32 years, Bravo! Vail Music Festival has brought classical music lovers together in the Vail Valley each summer. It has been our privilege and joy to share world-class music with all of you every year. There is nothing quite like it anywhere in the world -- the glorious summer evenings filled with warm breezes, majestic mountains, friendship, and spectacular music. It exemplifies the power of music to inspire and unite us. It is an exhilarating journey that we cherish.
Unfortunately, we write today to share the disappointing news that the 2020 Bravo! Vail Music Festival season is canceled. Your health and safety are our top priorities, and given the anticipated timelines for restrictions on events in Eagle County (details are available here), we are simply unable to move forward with the Festival as it was planned. This is a heartbreaking decision and a loss for the entire community.
Yet, despite our profound sadness, we look to the future with much hope and optimism. Nothing moves people quite like music, and while we do not yet know when live concerts will return to the stage, we are committed to being part of that joyous moment when it arrives. We are working with great enthusiasm to develop creative ideas and re-imagine how Bravo! Vail can continue to fulfill its mission of enriching people’s lives through the power of music.
This is an unexpected intermission, and not one any of us wishes to take. It is your dedication that will carry us through, and we are deeply grateful. A summer without Bravo! Vail as we know it seems unimaginable. Rest assured that we will be waiting in the wings and ready to celebrate the magic of music. Many thanks and stay well.
