The Armchair Concert series comes to a close with Aspen favorite, Michelle DeYoung. DeYoung has established herself as one of the most exciting artists of her generation, appearing at the finest opera houses of the world, from the Metropolitan Opera to La Scala. Her frequent Aspen performances have included everything from Verdi’s Requiem to Mahler’s Kindertotenlieder to Berlioz’s Les nuits d'été. For this virtual concert, she has put together a beautiful recital program that centers around Austrian composers with an introspective set of songs by Alma Mahler, songs about the night by Erich Zeisl, and Gustav Mahler's classic work Rückert-Lieder

The Aspen Music Festival and School is pleased to offer a series of virtual concerts created during the pandemic by musicians in the AMFS fold, both alumni and long-time performers. These beautifully filmed and curated one-hour concerts are free and viewable for three days each from the comfort of your own home.
