Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin and The Philadelphia Orchestra reunited in Vail for three concerts, performing together for the first time since the end of the 2016 Tour of Asia. The powerhouse programs were July 14 with pianist Kirill Gerstein, July 15 with violinist Lisa Batiashvili, and July 16 with Mahler’s powerful “Resurrection” Symphony, featuring soprano Karina Gauvin, mezzo-soprano Michelle DeYoung, and the Colorado Symphony Chorus.
When they aren’t rehearsing or performing, our musicians can be found taking advantage of Vail’s natural beauty and participating in the vibrancy of the region, through hiking, biking, and more! After nine years of summer residencies here, there’s still so much to see and do. Where will our musicians be spotted next?
