2019 Best of the Boat indoor music venue: Strings Music Festival

Grammy-winning musician Arturo Sandoval is best known for his trumpet playing, but his almost boyish enthusiasm for percussion instruments was also on display during an Aug. 9 performance at Strings Music Pavilion in Steamboat Springs.

David Crosby and Graham Nash ring a bell? How about Don McLean, Suzanne Vega, Boz Scaggs or David Grisman?

Those are just a handful of artists who have played recently at Strings Music Festival, a nationally recognized venue offering classical and contemporary programming.

Housed in the 6.5-acre Strings Festival Park, the award-winning Music Pavilion seats 569 people and showcases over 60 performances during the summer as well as a fall and winter series and year-round education concerts.

The festival features orchestra, chamber, soloists, world, blues, jazz and rock music along with a youth and family series.

This year represents the Festival’s 30th year of music.

“Steamboat is a special place and it’s amazing to have this type of music facility here,” says fifth season music director Michael Sachs. “It’s a true, world-class, year-round performing arts organization.”
