Returning to Crested Butte: Maestro David Stern
Maestro David Stern, Music Director of the Israeli Opera Tel Aviv will return to the Crested Butte Music Festival to conduct Rossini's Barber of Seville. With 4 performances on July 24, 25, 27 and 28th, Maestro Stern will lead our wonderful Festival Symphony Orchestra in this new production of Rossini's masterwork. Highlights of his upcoming seasons include his debuts with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra and Haydn di Bolzano e Trento Symphony Orchestra and reinvitations to the Vienna Chamber Orchestra, Bayerische Kammerphilharmonie, Hong Kong Philharmonic, Ulster Orchestra and Guangzhoz and Shanghai Symphony orchestras. A native New Yorker, Stern conducts Baroque music with the same intensity as later repertoire, and is equally comfortable with period instrument ensembles as with symphonic orchestras.
