From Claude Debussy’s luminous Reflections in the Water to Margaret Brouwer’s Lonely Lake to Bruce Adolphe’s hilarious Oceanophony, Off the Hook Arts WinterFest 2019 lets a lot of musical fish ‘off the hook’ as we focus on the beauty and wonder of our natural world as a source of musical inspiration.Let’s get back to pure nature — sunshine, wind, plants and flowers, lakes and streams, mountains included.

- Our Chamber Music Academy students
- Visiting artists Benny Kim and Keith Robinson of the Miami String Quartet and Kaoru Watanabe, shinobue player of the SilkRoad Ensemble
- Visiting presenters Jeanine Canty of Naropa University, Anthropology Professor Michael Kimball of University of Northern Colorado, and Artistic Director, composer Bruce Adolphe
