Music Under the Stars
July 23 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm$200
Virtuoso pianist and CBMF audience favorite Anna Arzumanyan returns to share a program of nocturnal music created especially for this performance at the Gunnison Valley Observatory. After enjoying this amazingly beautiful performance, you’ll join experts from the Observatory to view through powerful telescopes the natural wonders of the universe.
Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
