Bravo! Vail seeks to cultivate and inspire the musician inside every child. Little Listeners @ the Library, presented by Alpine Bank, introduces music and instruments in an approachable, accessible way. Kids can learn and interact with the Festival musicians, participating in games to capture a few musical insights along the way.
This year's Little Listeners @ the Library features a game board in coordination with the local libraries titled "Oceans of Possibilities," which will explore themes in music.
Each 30-minute program takes place at one of the four area libraries. Details on the location for each date listed below will be shared in the near future.
Little Listeners @ The Library are offered free of charge. However, they do still require a reservation.
All artists and programs are subject to change.
Do I need a ticket for this event?

We will begin taking reservations in June.
Is there reserved seating?
No, all Little Listeners @ the Library (LL@L) are open seating and first-come first-serve for reservation holders.
How long does this event last?
The interactive performance is 30 minutes long.
What if my child can’t sit through a whole performance?
Bravo! encourages children to move along with the music and you can come and go as you need.
What age group are these concerts for?
Any age is welcome to attend, however the programming is geared toward pre-school to second-grade age children.
What can I expect in terms of health and safety protocols?
As permitted by current State of Colorado and Eagle County guidelines, the Bravo! Vail Music Festival is operating at up to 100 percent capacity, without any social distancing or mask requirements. If you are not comfortable with this approach, although we will miss your presence, we ask that you consider not attending at this time.
Face coverings at local libraries will be optional. All individuals, whether they choose to wear a face covering or not, will be welcomed and respected.
Capacity at performance venues will be at or near 100 percent with no social distancing requirements.
What will my child learn from this event?
Your child will learn about a musical term and concept at each performance.
Are there interactive components involved?
Yes! Each performance will include a five- to 10-minute interactive musical activity from your seat. The entire series of concerts is created to follow a game board – students will be able to add a new piece of the puzzle to their boards each time they learn a new musical component at one of the performances.
Do I have to come to every performance for them to make sense?
No, though the educational material from each show works together, if you miss the first one you can still come to the second one. Children will have a game board that they can fill out by coming to multiple performances over the summer.
Are all the Little Listeners @ the Library the same show?
No, each performance features different musicians and each of the four events down-valley and up-valley covers different musical topics.
Will my child get to interact with the musicians?
Yes, attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of the featured musicians as part of the event.
