Community Concerts


Bravo! Vail Community Concerts remove barriers and create entry points to music by bringing the music out into the community. There are many concerts available this summer to be enjoyed either mid-day at The Chapel at Beaver Creek or in the evening, outdoors from the Bravo! Vail Music Box. 


Community Concerts are offered free of charge. However, they do still require a reservation.

All artists and programs are subject to change.

    The Westerlies: American Roots

    📍 The Chapel at Beaver Creek

    The Westerlies
       Riley Mulkerhar, trumpet
       Chloe Rowlands, trumpet
       Andy Clausen, trombone
       Willem de Koch, trombone

    DUKE ELLINGTON Echoes of Harlem
    DUKE ELLINGTON Where's the Music
    CHARLES IVES In The Mornin'
    CHARLES IVES Songs My Mother Taught Me
    ROBIN HOLCOMB Excerpts from Wherein Lies the Good
    WILLIAM WALKER Louisiana
    TRADITIONAL Weeping Mary
    TRADITIONAL Get Away Jordan
    WAYNE HORVITZ Home

    The Westerlies: American Roots weaves a common thread through the colorful tapestry of American music. Drawing upon shape note hymns, the art songs of Charles Ives, and the inimitable pen of Duke Ellington, The Westerlies translate these seemingly disparate collections of repertoire through their horns to find a common American voice. Also included on the program are excerpts from Wherein Lies The Good, an 11-movement work originally written for solo piano by Seattle-based composer/singer-songwriter Robin Holcomb. Holcomb is a longtime friend and mentor to The Westerlies since their childhood in Seattle, and their close personal relationship is reflected in the ensemble’s approach to her music. The Westerlies: American Roots presents The Westerlies at their best, cutting trails across the vast expanse of the American musical landscape.

    With The Westerlies: Songbook, the ensemble returns to their folk roots for a set of acoustic covers of some of their favorite songs. Listeners are invited into an intimate setting to bask in the warmth and immediacy of the group’s interpretations of John Prine, Judee Sill, Randy Newman, Aphex Twin, Ólafur Arnalds, and Arthur Russell. Many of the arrangements on this program were developed during the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic, as the ensemble drew upon songs that provided them comforting warmth in the face of great uncertainty. Stripped down to their essence, the brilliance and feeling of these timeless songs are heard in a revelatory new light.

    Move presents The Westerlies' vision for the future of chamber music: a musical world that celebrates spontaneity, improvisation, and timbral exploration, built around rich harmonies and timeless melodies that linger in one's ear. At the center of the program is Caroline Shaw's monumental string quartet, Entr'acte, reimagined by The Westerlies in a way that stretches traditional notions of the expressive potential of brass instruments. The program also includes original compositions by members of the ensemble, showcasing their personal voices as composers next to some of their greatest musical inspirations. With Move, The Westerlies tear down the walls of genre to construct a bold and inclusive musical universe. 

    The Community Concert is performed at the Edwards Interfaith Chapel. This free concert requires a reservation.
