Robert Spano Opens the Aspen Festival

Aspen, Colorado is well-known as a place to go for great skiing in the winter. It is also a wonderful place to find clean air and moderate temperatures in the summer, and provides all kinds of opportunities for energetic recreational activities. But it is known for other things too. The Aspen Institute regularly brings in leading experts in politics, economics, law, the environment, etc. for seminars and forums. For the music-lover the Aspen Music Festival is internationally renowned for the quality of its music-making. Almost every day there is a chamber music or orchestral concert in which leading soloists and orchestral musicians combine with gifted young artists. It is a place to learn, inspire and be inspired. If you go for the music you will also discover the other things that make Aspen special. In our video Aspen's music director Robert Spano - during the winter he heads the Atlanta Symphony - gives the 2012 convocation address which traditionally opens the season in Aspen.
