ASPEN MUSIC FESTIVAL AND SCHOOL LOCAL’S PASSES ON SALE FOR 20TH YEAR
Outstanding Deal for Locals
Includes Sundays * Advance Tickets * Great Flexibility

ASPEN, Colo.— In 1995, the Aspen Music Festival and School reached out to locals with its deeply discounted Local's Pass. An immediate hit, the Pass has been going strong ever since. Now in its 20th season, the AMFS Local's Pass still offers Roaring Fork Valley residents the chance to see world-class music all summer long for a fraction of regular ticket prices.

Passes cost just $60. With the pass, year-round residents may purchase deeply discounted tickets for up to six concerts: $30 (Sundays), $20 (Fridays and July 5 ACS), or $15 for any other regular concert or selected Opera Scenes Master Classes. 

In addition, pass holders will receive four free admissions to dress rehearsals or master classes (excluding Opera Scenes). And as a bonus for 2014, pass holders may see the Aspen Opera Theater Center production of the opera The Picture of Dorian Gray, based on the novel by Oscar Wilde, (July 24, 26) for $20.

Local's Passes are available now by calling 970-925-9042 or in person at the Harris Concert Hall Box Office starting May 19 (M-F, 9 am-5 pm). Limit one per person and a valid Roaring Fork Valley driver's license must be presented in order to pick up your pass. Not applicable for Special Events, Operas except as noted, Benefits, House Musics, and Opera Scenes Master Classes Weeks 4-8.
