Estes Park Winter Concert Series
Culture in the Colorado Mountains
Stephen King fans instantly recognize the venue where the Estes Park Winter Concert Series is held each year. Nestled among the trees with a stark mountainside for a backdrop, the Stanley Hotel instantly brings to mind scenes from The Shining. Although this might piqué your interest, the organizers behind these musical presentations are quick to assure everyone that these events are always tranquil. Contrary to common belief, The Stanley is full of life during the winter months. If you'd like to see for yourself and enjoy the musical stylings of great classical musicians, plan on visiting Estes Park this winter!
The 2011/2012 Concert Series
For the 35th year, this series of classical concerts is set to attract a diverse audience of music lovers. The winter session starts at the beginning of November and runs through the end of April. Every Sunday at 2:00 p.m., a different musician will take the stage to entertain the audience for a full hour. For a mere $5.00, music lovers can buy a ticket at the door, a very inexpensive price to see a live performance from a critically acclaimed musician.
