"It was an evening with incredible music by such talented musicians. We are so lucky to have this superb talent come to our small community and perform." Fall 2022

"What a wonderful experience, being in the midst of world class musicians. And the free performance at Silverthorne Pavilion was a gift to all of us." Fall 2022

"I have never had such an extensive experience with chamber music, but I discovered a fascinating array of music coming from these few instruments.   It struck me that there is an intimacy with the few instruments that seems sharper and more stimulating than listening to a full orchestra. I’ll be back next season!" Fall 2022 

"Outstanding performances by incredibly gifted musicians." Fall 2019

"It was a magical evening" Fall 2018

"Music - It's always first class. I so appreciate that Jessie and Rieko obviously put much thought into selection and preparation." June 2017

"The Mills-Aizawa performance of Schubert and Prokefiev on the same program was daring; their elegance and mastery brought me to tears." Robb, June 2016

"Where do you find these incredible musicians?" Joe Lanuza, Board Member of Oistrakh Symphony in Chicago, June 2016.

Background Statement

Alpenglow Chamber Music Festivals began in 1998 and is now in its 26th season! Founded by two distinguished former musicians from the Colorado Symphony, concertmaster Steven Copes and clarinetist Bill Jackson, the Festival has had a very exciting musical journey. The Artistic Directors, Rieko Aizawa and Jesse Mills, bring the highest quality to Alpenglow, sharing in the joy of music, and reaching out to younger generation.

In 2022 Alpenglow celebrated its 25th Anniversary Season in beautiful Summit County, Colorado. The audience experienced beloved classics by masters such as Bach, Brahms and Beethoven along side new works by living composers, including the world premier of Kenji Bunch's "Danceband" for piano trio and percussion.
