The winter recital series includes performances at Harris Concert Hall from three Aspen favorites: pianist Inon Barnatan (Feb. 10), the Calder Quartet (Feb. 17) and violinist Simone Porter (March 3).

The broadcasts of Metropolitan Opera performances will run Feb. 8 and 15 and March 1 in the Wheeler Opera House, featuring “Boris Godunov,” “Fire Shut Up in My Bones” and “Cinderella” on the big screen.

Tickets for both series will be available at the Wheeler box office and

The Music Fest is also expected to make an announcement next week with details and the full concert lineup for its summer 2022 season, which is themed “Tapestries: What We Talk About When We Talk About Ourselves” with works about how art is used to create identity.
