Commemorative book to mark 50th anniversary of Music Fest

Aspen Times Staff Report

The Aspen Music Festival, in partnership with Sojourner Publications, Inc., has announced that it will publish a hard-bound commemorative book as part of its 50th anniversary celebration this summer.

Called “A Tent in the Meadow,” the full-color, 128-page book will contain the complete history of the Aspen Music Festival, from its beginnings in 1949. The book is the culmination of years of work by award-winning local author Bruce Berger, a close follower of the Music Festival for more than three decades.

It will be illustrated with photographs from the past 50 years, including works by the likes of Ferenc Berko, Margaret Durrance, Charles Abbott, Robert Biddlecome and Alex Irvin. The book will also include advertisements.

“Bruce’s history deserves a gorgeous presentation, said Music Festival President Robert Harth. “The partnership with Sojourner means we will be able to produce a much higher quality piece than we could have on our own.”

“A Tent in the Meadow” is due out in time for the opening of the Music Festival on June 24.
