Breckenridge Creative Arts and Breckenridge Music Respond To COVID‐19

Based on recommendations from Summit County Public Health, Summit County and the Town of Breckenridge, all public events and performances in the Riverwalk Center, Breckenridge Theater, Speakeasy Theater, Arts District Campus, and Old Masonic Hall will be canceled or postponed effective Friday, March 13 through April 30, 2020.

“This is a difficult decision made by the Town Council, but one that we know is made with the goal of saving lives. This move will be challenging for our staff, artists, volunteers, and audiences, but the Breckenridge arts community is committed to the health and safety of our Town,” said Breckenridge Creative Arts BreckCreate President + CEO Matt Neufeld.

BreckCreate Classes and workshops on the Arts District Campus are currently suspended. The Riverwalk Center Ticket Office will be in touch with anyone who has already purchased a ticket to notify them of a refund or rescheduled event or workshop. We encourage patrons to visit breckcreate.org or breckmusic.org for more information and updates.

All Breck Music programs are suspended through April 30 due to public health concerns. This includes performances Gershwin & Schumann on March 21 (canceled), Steel Betty on March 27 (postponed pending further notice), and Del McCoury on March 28 (canceled), as well as all associated in‐school Breck Music Education programs. Please visit breckmusic.org for more information on refunds and rescheduled events.

Consider converting your ticket or registration purchase into a donation. In recognition of the events, classes, and festivals that have inspired and entertained us, we ask you to rally around the importance of arts and culture in our community by forgoing a refund and consider converting your ticket purchase into a fully tax-deductible donation. This gift will provide direct relief to BreckCreate and Breck Music as we bear the unanticipated financial strain caused by the cancellation of performances, events, and classes. Your support is needed now more than ever. To initiate this gift or make an additional donation, please contact tamara@breckmusic.org or the Riverwalk Center Ticket Office.

We are committed to supporting our Town and our community during this difficult time. We do not take this suspension of activities lightly, knowing that the communal connections made at public art events are some of the strongest tools against the fears and anxieties of this moment.

We look forward to sharing the arts with you and your families once this public health emergency has passed. Thank you for your understanding and for being part of our arts community.
