Aspen Music Festival And School

COVID Policies

The Aspen Music Festival and School continues to closely monitor public health conditions and will always operate following all state and county health orders to safeguard its artists, patrons, artist-faculty, students, staff, and community. Guidelines may change at any time and this page will be updated to reflect current conditions.  

AMFS reserves the right to make necessary programmatic adjustments up to full cancellation, in the case of unforeseen circumstances. Unforeseen circumstances is used to describe an event that prevents the AMFS from proceeding with programming in traditional fashion. Examples of such circumstances can include, but are not limited to, natural disasters, site unavailability, health and safety risks, and technology issues.  

In the event that the AMFS must rescind a student’s offer of admission due to unforeseen circumstances, tuition and housing deposits/fees will be refunded. Application fees are not refundable. 



As of August 2022, the Aspen Music Festival and School will continue to require that all students be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 before arriving in Aspen. Requests for applicable exemptions (medical and religious) will be considered. These requests must be communicated prior to enrollment to the Office of Student Services.
