This year marked the 19th anniversary of celebrating the Innsbrook Institute, a renowned summer music festival, attracting top-notch students and faculty from across the country and from around the world. When Ed Boyce, the “father” of Innsbrook, and David Halen, Concertmaster of the St. Louis Symphony, got together in 2000 and conceived the idea of a summer music program, who could have imagined their plan would blossom into one of the premier summer music festivals in the country. Indeed, concert patrons have been treated to some of the finest performances of classical music heard ANYWHERE.
While you may have heard of the Innsbrook Institute, you may not have experienced firsthand this splendid music in the intimate atmosphere of the Aspen Center. I must admit that in 2000, I was not what one would call an aficionado of classical music, but I still marveled at the talent showcased in our own “backyard” every year, and I now have come to greatly anticipate and appreciate these musical offerings.
We would like to invite you to be a part of the Innsbrook Institute Society. If you are a property owner, you are already benefitting from the existence of the Institute. When we think of things that make Summers special at Innsbrook, surely fireworks, summer breeze concerts, and many other wonderful amenities come to mind. The Institute is also an integral part of what makes Innsbrook such a special destination. We hope you will consider expanding your experiences of treasured times together at Innsbrook, as we invite you to become an active member in the dynamic life of the Institute.
For the first time, we are offering the opportunity for you to be a member of the Innsbrook Institute Society. Like most not-for-profits, we struggle to keep our books balanced as we strive to bring the very best possible talent for our annual event. We need your help in order to continue doing so. Each year, we provide student subsidies to a majority of the academy attendees. While these young artists are blessed with unusual talent, many students would simply not be able to attend, based solely on their individual financial situations. Your decision to support the Institute Society (at any level) will assist in keeping this valued asset a part of the Innsbrook experience for many years to come.
