Aspen Square Daily News
Classical music lovers who have been waiting nine months for the music to return, are rejoicing with the opening of this year's Aspen Music Festival tomorrow night, June 26. Festival favorite, violinist Robert McDuffie gets the ball rolling with a recital at 7pm in Harris Concert Hall. Let the picnicking on the lawn begin!

This weekend perfectly illustrates Aspen's staggeringly diverse cultural scene during the summer. Tonight alone you can sample the Food & Wine Classic (if you can score a pass), a concert by Steve Winwood at the Benedict Music Tent, or watch the World Cup in venues throughout town. Tomorrow, you can ride up the Silver Queen Gondola and take in the weekly Bluegrass Sunday concert at the Sundeck, hike up Smuggler Mountain or enjoy another concert by Jazz Aspen. We are so lucky to live here!
Although we still have two days before we're officially in summer, you wouldn't know it in Aspen. The Food & Wine Classic in Aspen began today
in Wagner Park and tonight, Jazz Aspen Snowmass kicks of their June Experience with Trombone Shorty at 8pm at the Benedict Music Tent. Opening the concert will be New Orleans-based singer John Boutte. For details, visit www.jazzaspensnowmass.org.
