Sally Miner

Sally Miner experienced great joy in sharing her love of music with others. To that end, she presented educational programs about music that helped listeners to understand better the complexities and beauty of the art form. The Crested Butte Music Festival is preserving Sally Miner’s legacy of music education by naming Dr. Erik Christian Peterson’s popular weekly lecture series, Musical Mondays, the Sally Miner Musical Mondays Lecture Series.

Dr. Peterson, Co-Artistic Director of the CBMF, presents a free, weekly series dedicated to exploring extensively a musical topic; in 2020, his sold-out series discussed Beethoven and Romanticism. This gift will ensure that Ms. Miner’s legacy of musical education will be preserved; future generations will continue to hone their love of music by attending lectures named in her honor.

Ms. Miner was an eloquent speaker whose prose evoked the singular beauty and character of Crested Butte. Additionally, she delighted in educating others about music.
