Nancy Livingston was born in California and began playing violin at a very early age, inspired by the musical talents of her grandfather and great-grandfather. Nancy received her bachelor’s degree in Music Performance from Northern Arizona University and joined the Phoenix Symphony in 1973 under the direction of Eduardo Mata. She participated in the Redlands University Summer Music Programs and the Mainly Mozart Festival under the direction of Jeffrey Siegel.

How many years have you been coming to CBMF…..about 13 years!
What do you like most about the festival and Crested Butte?
The country and beauty
What are you most excited about this year?
The music variety and places to play.
The fishing, mushroom hunting, kayaking, frisbee golf, hiking, outdoors, rain, fog, flowers, animals, festivals, coffee, friends and everyone, everything! One special thing: the appreciation of the people there for the festival and the support. And I think Crested Butte is a hidden treasure.
