2021 Silent Auction & Paddle Raise

During the summer season, Free Community Concerts, Family Concerts, and Little Listeners @ The Library are fun entry-points into the world of classical music-and help children and adults alike develop an appreciation for the arts. The Bravo! Vail Music Box, a custom-designed mobile stage, makes outdoor performances safely accessible throughout the Valley. And music-lovers of all ages can enjoy free lunchtime concerts at the Vail Chapel that feature members of resident orchestras as well as Chamber Musicians in Residence and Piano Fellows: outstanding artists in the early stages of major careers. 

At Bravo! Vail's After-School Piano & Violin Programs, students in grades two through 12 learn fundamental musical concepts and instrument skills throughout the academic year. Class sizes are kept small to ensure individualized attention for each student.

Some of the items available for bidding include intimate dinners with Festival musicians, luxury travel packages, and unique adventure experiences. The proceeds from this online auction are a powerful investment in our community, supporting Bravo! Vail’s Education & Engagement Programs and enriching people’s lives through the power of music.  

The online auction will launch in mid July and close just after the final orchestral concert of the Festival. Bid early, bid often...inspire and support a music-loving community! 

Share Music with the Community

Bravo! Vail's mission of enriching people's lives through the power of music comes to life in the many free community concerts presented throughout the summer Festival. The Free Concert Series, Community Concerts, and Little Listeners @ The Library foster music education and promote a lifelong appreciation of the arts.

These engaging and accessible programs are available to the community free of charge because of the generous support of Bravo! Vail donors. 

Community Concerts

Fostering Music Education

Bravo! Vail's popular after-school programs encourage students to achieve their goals and pursue their musical interests with zealous. The 2020/2021 programs culminated in 130 students participating in four virtual recitals. Performances during the recital week included original compositions, use of technology to put together ensemble pieces, jazz and pop selections that students researched and decided on, and favorite classical works.

Donor contributions create experiences like this that have a significant impact on the students lives and help make their dreams a reality.
