The Rocky Mountain Center for Musical Arts was founded in 1995 by Kathy Kucsan and Peggy Bruns. The Colorado Music Festival completed its 39th summer in 2016. The two merged in 2009 and in 2013 the new name Colorado Music Festival & Center for Musical Arts was chosen.

Colorado Music Festival & Center for Musical Arts is a one-of-a-kind organization that provides a broad spectrum of music education opportunities and world-class performances to citizens throughout Boulder County and beyond.

The Colorado Music Festival

Colorado Music Festival presents a six-week summer concert season at Chautauqua Auditorium in Boulder showcasing Music Director Jean-Marie Zeitouni and the Colorado Music Festival Orchestra. Inspired programming performed by exceptional national and international musicians has earned Colorado Music Festival recognition from the League of American Orchestras and the National Endowment for the Arts.

The Center for Musical Arts

The Center provides quality, creative music-making opportunities to over 550 students each week. Another 7,000 people visit the school each year to attend concerts and events of all types.

The Center for Musical Arts is a full member of the National Guild for Community Arts Education and has, at its core, a belief in “Music For All… For Life!” This translates into providing access to excellent music education to our entire community. We achieve this, in part, through our Heartstrings Program, which consists of an Instrument Bank to provide low-cost instrument rentals and Tuition Assistance so that everyone can afford to participate.
