When the Aspen Music Festival and School opens for the summer on June 18th it will be the start of the 66th season of classical concerts and performances. Year over year, the festival has featured well-known conductors, composers and musicians and paired many of them with students. Some of those students have gone on to become world renown and then return to Aspen for the summer to teach the next generation. For audiences the festival offers hundreds of performances. Alan Fletcher is the president and CEO of the Aspen Music Festival and School he spoke about the summer’s events with APR’s Roger Adams.
