THE HILLS ARE ALIVE
The Strings Music Pavilion is Steamboat’s premier live music venue. The award-winning Music Pavilion seats 569 people and showcases over 60 performances during the summer months from June through August as well as a Fall & Winter series and year-round education concerts. The festival features orchestra, chamber, soloists, world, blues, jazz and rock music along with a Youth and Family series, and free concerts at the Yampa River Botanic Park. 2018 represents the Festival’s 30th year of music.
Strings Music Festival presents music of the highest quality in an intimate mountain setting. The summer festival includes a genre-spanning lineup featuring classical musicians from the nation’s top orchestras and chart-topping popular contemporary artists. All of whom perform in an intimate, 569-seat Pavilion nestled at the base of Steamboat’s mountains.
Outside of the venue, Strings serve the community with a variety of free programming and an in-school education program called Strings School Days. This offering cultivates music appreciation and ability in Northwest Colorado’s K-12 students.
The mission of Strings Music Festival is to present innovative programs of distinctive classical and popular contemporary music in an intimate and friendly setting to audiences of all ages, enhancing the cultural, educational, and entertainment experiences of the community of Northwest Colorado and its visitors.
