Boulder Things to Do: 50 reviews and 68 photos

The Colorado Music Festival is a six-week summer classical music festival at the beautiful, historic Chautauqua Auditorium in Boulder. Featuring professional musicians from around the world and Music Director Michael Christie, the festival offers something for everyone.

The 2007 summer season will feature world-renowned percussionist Colin Currie, the Colorado premiere of Osvaldo Golijov?s flamenco opera Ainadamar, a unique chamber orchestra performance of Carl Orff?s Camina Burana, acclaimed pianist Simon Trpceski, internationally acclaimed klezmer clarinetist David Krakauer, Gustav Mahler?s Symphony No. 2 ?Resurrection," and much more!

Chautauqua Auditorium is a turn-of-the-century, all-wood structure that is considered one of the best acoustical venues in Colorado. And with its location at the base of the Flatirons, it is surrounded by truly spectacular scenery.

One of the great summer things to do is to enjoy a picnic and a nice bottle of wine at Chautauqua Park prior to a CMF concert.

It's a Boulder summer musical treasure!
