Principal trumpet for the Cleveland Orchestra, Michael Sachs has been named the Strings Music Festival’s new music director. Sachs is taking over for longtime co-directors Andres Cardenes and Monique Mead and will begin in fall 2014 with concerts kicking off in summer 2015.
“In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” Apologies to Benjamin Franklin, but I have to add “and Steamboat summer will be too short, regardless of how wonderfully it seems to stretch out before you at the beginning of June.”
I think everyone in Steamboat has their own personal “first day of summer.” For some, it’s when the gondola starts up again for summertime enjoyment of Mount Werner. For others, it’s when the Yampa drops down to tube-manageable levels or when their favorite watering hole starts serving happy hour on the patio.
