The Aspen Music Festival and School is offering free tickets to federal workers who have been furloughed.

 

Government employees who aren’t collecting a paycheck due to the shutdown can attend one of the concerts in the school’s winter music series.

The series starts Tuesday with a performance by pianist Yefim Bronfman. Two other recitals take place in February; one with violinist Jennifer Koh and pianist Shai Wosner on Feb. 7, and another with pianist Marc-André Hamelin on Feb. 28.

Federal workers affected by the government shutdown can claim their free pair of tickets by calling the Harris Concert Hall box office.
