The final presentation of Jazz Aspen's June Experience goes out with a bang tonight, when living legend Tony Bennett takes the stage at the Benedict Music Tent. Mr. Bennett's daughter Antonia will join him in what promises to be a memorable show by the ageless performer. The show begins at 8:30pm and you can book your tickets online at www.aspenmusicfestival.com.
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!
