Aspen Music Festival And School

Support Winter Music

We are very pleased to announce the return of the Aspen Music Festival and School’s Winter Music Recital Series. For more than two decades, the AMFS has presented a recital series in Harris Concert Hall that showcases this spectacular venue to Aspen’s winter devotees and maintains its presence within the Roaring Fork Valley. Support of Winter Music has been instrumental in allowing the AMFS to continue to bring world-class music to the mountains beyond the summer months and maintain its excellence as a presenting organization.

The Irving Harris Foundation generously committed to a grant of one million dollars to permanently endow Winter Music in Aspen and to guarantee Harris Concert Hall's continued maintenance. In early 2017, we completed the match and we are extremely grateful to Joan Harris and the Foundation for leading with their support for the wonderful, jewel-box performance venue and the music that is performed within. If you would like to support the continued presentation of the Winter Music Recital Series at Harris Hall, please and make a fully-deductible gift to the Joan and Irving Harris Hall 20th Anniversary Fund by calling Steve Haddad, Vice President for Advancement, at 970 205 5060, or email him at

Many thanks to the sponsors of the 2018 Winter Music Recital Series!
