Vail, CO (February 10, 2022)– The Bravo! Vail Music Festival (Bravo!

Comprised of more than 60 concerts throughout Colorado’s Vail Valley, the six-week festival showcases four internationally acclaimed resident orchestras—The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, The Philadelphia Orchestra, and the New York Philharmonic—alongside renowned chamber ensembles and new and familiar voices in composition and artistry.

“This season embraces the return of full-scale orchestras, robust programming, family favorites, and concert series that our audiences have come to love at Bravo! Vail,” said Artistic Director Anne-Marie McDermott. “We are also balancing this with a deeper exploration of beloved masterpieces and introduction of relevant new works in the symphonic and chamber repertoire. I look forward to bringing audiences along on this inspiring journey.”

Bravo! Vail’s 35th season elevates the Festival’s commitment to supporting living composers and their work through the launch of the New Works Symphonic Commissioning Project (Symphonic Commissioning Project). As part of this bold initiative, Bravo! Vail will commission three new works each year for five years, engaging a wide representation of compositional voices. Premiere performances will take place during the Festival by Bravo! Vail’s resident orchestras or the selected chamber orchestra, and some commissioned composers will be on-site to engage with audiences and participate in educational activities.

The 2022 Symphonic Commissioning Project includes world premieres of works by Chris Rogerson, Katherine Balch, and Carlos Simon, performed by The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, Dallas Symphony Orchestra, and New York Philharmonic, respectively. In addition to these new symphonic works, eight additional pieces by living composers will have their Bravo! Vail premieres this season.
