The Colorado Music Festival Continues Its 2017 Season
Founded in 1976, the Colorado Music Festival (CMF) presents a summer season of classical music concerts performed by professional musicians from around the world at the historic Chautauqua Auditorium in Boulder. Emerging talent from Europe, Asia, South America and the U.S. join CMF musicians in performances that inspire and engage concertgoers of all ages. Under the skilled baton of Music Director Jean-Marie Zeitouni, the CMF thrills audiences of more than 20,000 each season with programming that embraces the most beloved classical music repertoire, while integrating world music and the works of exciting modern composers.
In October of 2009 the Colorado Music Festival merged with Rocky Mountain Center for Musical Arts, an organization founded in 1995, fulfilling the vision of Music for all… for life!™ by providing quality, creative music-making experiences for people of all ages, abilities, cultural backgrounds, and financial circumstances. In 2013 the new name, Colorado Music Festival & Center for Musical Arts (CMF & CMA) was chosen. The Center for Musical Arts serves between 600-700 students weekly, ages six months through 80 years, through a variety of programs, and has a highly-skilled faculty of 40 professional teaching artists. In addition to educational offerings, hundreds of community audience members are served annually through a number of guest artist and faculty performances. The CMA’s Heartstrings Program of need-based tuition assistance and a 200-piece “bank” of string and wind instruments for area school children assure that no one is turned away.
