Our staff began work on the Summer Festival just days after the Valentine Concert. Season tickets will go on sale soon. Kevin has already selected most of the musicians for this summer's extravaganza and assures me that you will be thrilled by his choices.
In this season we plan to expand our outreach program, sending musicians to more places, putting on more free events, and generally spreading music around the Valley as widely as we can. Last year we colaborated with The Cove, Room One, the Confluence Gallery, Freestone Inn, The Ciderhouse, Sun Mountain Lodge, and the Shafer Museum. We can do more, and will.
Centerstage Concert Dates
July 27, 29 and Aug. 1, 3, 5
On the morning of each concert we will hold free public rehearsals on the concert grounds, open to anyone who wants to hear the music, but for whatever reason cannot attend the evening concerts. Hint: Open rehearsals are a good way to introduce small children to the concept of classical music in a relaxed and non-confining environment.
We hope to see you at a concert this summer!
Jane Orme, President of the Board
Support Your Festival
Presenting world-class musicians in the beautiful, natural setting of the Methow Valley is our most visible activity, but there is much more. Your Festival brings the music to the people through open reheasals, free community events, teaching, and children's discounts.
We also seek to keep ticket prices affordable for patrons living in our small rural community. As a result, ticket prices at our events cover only one quarter of our operating costs even when we sell out. The generosity of individual donors like you makes up the difference. We sincerely appreciate everyone who shares the depth of our committment to keeping fine music affordable within our region.
Please join us in this endeavor. Donate
