Aspen Nightlife – Harris Concert Hal




There is always something going on in Aspen,



Colorado and the Aspen nightlife is very active.



You can find a wide variety of things to do – but



if you want a little culture, you should definitely



find out what events are planned at the Harris



Concert Hall.





At the Harris Concert Hall, you will find



everything from Piano Recitals to Rock-n-Roll



Concerts. Events are planned well in advance,



so you should be able to find out what concerts



and events are scheduled to coincide with your



Aspen vacation.





The Harris Concert Hall is located in the West



end of Aspen, in a quaint residential



neighborhood. Due to parking and traffic



problems, you should strongly consider



walking to the concert hall. It is a short ten



minute walk from the downtown area. Other



transportation options include biking or taking



the bus. When there are events at the concert,



it is very difficult to find parking.





The Aspen Music Festival and School were



founded in 1949 by Walter and Elizabeth



Paepcke from Chicago. Many music



professionals train here and all of the school



and festival performances take place in the



Harris Concert Hall, which seats over 2000



people.





You should definitely try to visit Aspen during



the Music Festival. This takes place over a nine



week period in the summer, and there are



usually more than 200 planned events. People



from all over the world come to the Aspen



Music Festival, so be sure that you make your



plans and reservations early!





Another exciting event that takes place at the



Harris Concert Hall is the Aspen Film Festival.



This festival takes place three times each year.



The Aspen Shortsfest is held in the Spring. The



Aspen Filmfest is held during the Fall, and the



Aspen Academy Screenings are held during the



Winter. Again, people come from all over the



world for these events, so make your plans



early.





The Harris Concert Hall is full of history, even



though the newest section of it wasn’t built



until recently. This is a major part of Aspen’s



history and culture, and you should try to attend



at least one event at the Harris Concert Hall



while you are in Aspen. Most events take place



in the evening; however there are also events



that take place during the day. You can check



with your lodge or hotel to find out what events



are planned at the Concert Hall each day. Also



inquire about the need to purchase advance



tickets for specific events.
