A Classical Pair: The Aspen Music Festival & Dancing Bear Aspen

Aspen and the Arts. Nestled in all the alpine charm of what is Colorado's best-loved skiing resort community, the home of Timbers Resorts' Dancing Bear Aspen is a haven as well for music, art, and culture.

It is a notion that Timbers Resorts cherishes, and one that Owners and guests are invited to discover when they explore the environs of their private residence club.

Because coming to Aspen is not just about that rare and all-important retreat. Of course there are the amenities: unique boutiques, fine dining and fine wine, spectacular scenery. The Aspen Idea of uniting mind, body, and spirit are nourished by all of these things. The team at Timbers Resorts is especially excited to highlight an example of what is also the best in performance offered by Aspen. Enter the Aspen Music Festival & School.

Dancing Bear Aspen is proud to support this important pillar of culture and education as an Encore Sponsor of one of its 2012 summer programs. On Sunday, July 29, Dancing Bear Aspen will be the underwriter of a special concert and post-performance reception, inviting Owners and guests to premier seating at the show with an invitation to join for an exquisite VIP reception afterward.

The Aspen Music Festival and School: a premier classical music festival, presents more than 300 musical events during its eight-week summer season in Aspen. The institution draws top classical musicians from around the world, and the special evening sponsored by Dancing Bear Aspen will have that talent on display.

On July 29, conductor Manfred Honeck — acclaimed music director of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra —  leads the Aspen Festival Orchestra on a journey through Brahms' Piano Concerto No. 2 in B-flat major, op. 83 and Richard Strauss' Ein Heldenleben (A Hero's Life), op. 40.

Pianist Yefim Bronfman and violinist Robert Chen are featured.

The pianist, Bronfman, won a Grammy in 1997 for his Bartók recordings. The violinist, Chen, is concertmaster of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and has won top prizes in major musical competitions around the world. He has collaborated with Itzhak Perlman and Yo Yo Ma, among others.

Dancing Bear Aspen Owners are invited as guests to this remarkable night. Contact Audrey Allen at Dancing Bear Aspen via email or by calling 970.920.2510 for details and visit the Festival's site to see all the offerings. We'll see you at the encore!
