Saving our stages and putting artists back to work is top of mind for 2021. Music is medicine after all. It’s medicine for artists who are led to create and perform, and music is medicine for the ones who travel near and far to enjoy the strongest form of magic. Music is medicine for many of our students. Their desire to learn, practice, and experience the results in the sound, and through the joy of others is what brings them back week after week. This past year was challenging for so many including artists. As educators and musicians, we are ready to put this pandemic behind us and return safely to a new normal. A new normal that includes LIVE music.
Located in front of the Surf Hotel, on South Main Town Square, The LAWN is THE spot to bring your family and friends during the summer to enjoy live music. Beloved by music-lovers and musicians alike, this acclaimed open-air venue is surrounded by 360-degrees of stunning Colorado landscape. Kick off your shoes, bring a picnic blanket, and dance the night away during our live summer concerts! Learn more about The Lawn HERE.
