We’ve reached the midway point of the 2019 Colorado College Summer Music Festival. A new infusion of festival artists is taking place while a number of great musicians are gone until next summer. Last night was the hub—the third of five chamber-music concerts given by the festival artists.
On Sunday afternoon, the Colorado College Summer Music Festival presented A Concert of Woman Composers, and the festival artists’ performances made a strong case that the time for dropping gender classification is upon us.
