Now in its 21st year, the Crested Butte Music Festival presents outstanding performances in diverse musical genres and accompanying hands-on educational programs each summer. Over 150 artists visit Crested Butte from around the world to perform and coach patrons and education participants. These professional musicians, conductors, singers, choreographers and stage directors include artists and educators from New York’s Metropolitan Opera, the London Symphony Orchestra, The Juilliard School, as well as celebrated soloists, popular ensembles, and Grammy-nominated and award-winning performers in jazz, bluegrass, and folk.
The passionate generosity of supporters of the arts sustains CBMF’s mission year after year in a variety of ways: through contributions to the annual fund; gifts in memory or honor of loved ones, past teachers or arts supporters; business sponsorships; artist support, in-kind donations of goods or services; monthly or legacy gifts, and support of the Mt. Crested Butte Mirror Palace.
Every contribution supports the outstanding artists whose lifelong dedication brings music to life, and exposes residents and visitors of the rural Gunnison Valley to musical experiences and opportunities that are otherwise only available in major metropolitan areas.
The Crested Butte Music Festival is deeply grateful for support that ensures the future of music at every age.
