The Sound of Extraordinary is coming to the Valley, as Bravo! Vail opens its 2014 Season on June 27. This season promises to be exceptional with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, The Philadelphia Orchestra, and the New York Philharmonic taking up residence in Vail, performing programs of the great classics, plus jazz and pops. In addition, world renowned soloists and chamber music artists join Bravo! Vail in numerous chamber concerts, free events, and community outreach programs.
July 12: Rachmaninoff and Brahms: This concert marks the Bravo! Vail debut of the sensational French pianist Hélène Grimaud.
New York Philharmonic (July 18 – July 25) July 20: Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet: A program featuring Tchaikovsky’s romantic Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture, whose love theme is instantly recognizable across the globe.
July 23: American Favorites: Conductor Bramwell Tovey leads a jazzy program of colorful American favorites, including Gershwin’s Strike Up the Band Overture.
Silver Oak and Twomey Series July 29, 30 and 31: The Silver Oak & Twomey series is designed to create a new atmosphere for listening—relaxed, elegant, intimate, and enveloped by the beauty of the outdoors. It encourages both guest and performers to mingle over great food and Silver Oak and Twomey wines, which creates a sense of openness, receptivity, and good spirit.
Every ticket includes two complimentary glasses of Silver Oak and Twomey wine and appetizers.
Community Engagement and Education Events All Season Long: Bravo! Vail offers several ways for concert goers and community members to enhance their Bravo! Vail experience. From Little Listeners @ the Library for young children, Pre-Concert Talks to educate audiences on the evening’s repertoire, or Music on the Move with roving musicians popping up to perform throughout Vail Village, there’s certainly a little something extra for everyone!

Vail Symposium June 26: Vail Symposium Presents “Get Your Head in the Game” featuring Dallas Symphony Orchestra principal flautist Demarre McGill and former Denver Bronco Reggie Rivers. McGill and Rivers will detail their thoughts before they take the stage, or before the game, and how they reflect on their performance after the final bow or whistle. In this intimate discussion of pressure, focus, and mentality, McGill and Rivers will discuss the struggle to perform and how they consistently come out on top.
