Performance Today goes to the Aspen Music Festival

Posted at 2:00 PM on August 17, 2009 by Suzanne Schaffer (1 Comments)

This is Suzanne, features producer for Performance Today. I went to the Aspen Music Festival in July on behalf of PT and I'm stepping into Fred's blogging shoes this week to share with you some of my experiences there. I had never been to Aspen before so everything was a discovery and, truth be told, this was my favorite one: music on a mountain.


First of all, I loved the originality of having the concert at the top of the mountain. Secondly, I appreciated the reminder that music is about adventure. Here were five young musicians going to extreme lengths, or heights, to get other people as excited about music as they were. "Feel free to clap whenever you feel like it," they said. "Go ahead and walk around, take pictures while we play," they said. But I took their message to say music isn't stuffy, it's fun. Go ahead and enjoy it. See more images.

Great feature, Suzanne and Fred, and those are some neat images! Sorry the gondola wasn't noisier, but still great to hear.
