Steamboat Art Museum to host inaugural concert in partnership with Strings
January 10, 2019
STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — The Steamboat Art Museum will host a collaborative concert with Strings Music Festival at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 15, at the museum.
The inaugural "Intersections: Music at the Museum" will feature Austin Fisher, former Colorado Symphony acting principal cello, who is in town with the Strings Music Festival to work with area schools through the Strings School Days program.
During the event at the museum, Fisher will share a repertoire inspired by "Moments in the Wild," the retrospective exhibition by renowned nature and wildlife painter James Morgan. In addition to the performance, Fisher will include commentary about the music.
"The new museum is an intimate and inspiring setting, which is ideal for chamber music," Steamboat Art Museum Executive Director Betse Grassby said. "We hope that this is the beginning of future chamber music programming at SAM with Strings."
This first collaboration is free to the public. Doors open at 5 p.m., and the concert will begin at 5:30 p.m.
