ASPEN, COLORADO—Enjoy the Aspen Music Festival and School’s annual Winter Music Recital Series at a deep discount by purchasing an Early Bird Subscription, available only through Nov. 1.
Three classical music recitals by AMFS alumni comprise the series: rising star pianist Conrad Tao on Thursday, Feb. 9; beloved violinist Simone Porter on Thursday, March 2; and world-renowned violinist Robert McDuffie on Saturday, March 11. All three recitals take place at 6:30 p.m. in Harris Concert Hall.
Conrad Tao, called “a thoughtful artist and dynamic performer” by The New York Times, has performed worldwide. He has been named a Presidential Scholar in the Arts and a Gilmore Young Artist and has been awarded a YoungArts gold medal in music and the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant.
Simone Porter has been called “bold,” “virtuosic” and “impassioned” by some of the top music critics in the world, and she has performed as a soloist with such orchestras as the New York Philharmonic, the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Los Angeles Philharmonic. She made her professional solo debut at age 10 with the Seattle Symphony and her international debut with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at age 13.
Robert McDuffie, called “a musician of probing intelligence, a violinist of authority and a force of great vitality” by the San Francisco Chronicle, has performed with such orchestras as the New York Philharmonic, the Chicago Symphony, the Los Angeles Philharmonic and more, and Philip Glass dedicated his Second Violin Concerto, "The American Four Seasons," to McDuffie.
