36th Season | June 22 – August 3, 2023
The Bravo! Vail Music Festival announced its 36th festival season Wednesday, with more than 80 concerts throughout the Vail Valley from June 22-Aug. 3. The six-week festival presents four internationally acclaimed resident orchestras — Academy of St Martin in the Fields, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, The Philadelphia Orchestra, and the New York Philharmonic — alongside renowned chamber ensembles showcasing a rich schedule of inspiring guest artists, classical and pops programming, and new music.
In 1987, founding executive director John Giovando and founding artistic director Ida Kavafian established Bravo! Vail as public 501 (c) 3 Colorado non-profit corporation. Since then, Bravo! Vail has evolved from a small chamber music series to an international music festival with dozens of performances throughout Eagle County, and summer home to the world’s greatest musicians and orchestras.
