New in 2020: The Festival is growing!

The Sun Valley Music Festival recently adopted a five-year strategic plan that includes new initiatives to make even more music throughout the year and to bring the joy of live, classical music to every child in the Wood River Valley through performances in schools. To bring these initiatives to life, increases in all levels of the Annual Fund have been implemented. These are the first increases in giving levels since the Festival’s founding 35 years ago. You will receive more information about these exciting changes in the mail soon.

“One of the most important reasons we donate is that we feel the Sun Valley Music Festival is such a gift to this valley and all who live and stay here.

To be able to enjoy the music for free is the beginning of an appreciation for this beautiful music that may not otherwise happen. For us, the initial experience of sitting on the lawn with children, dogs, and picnics opened the door to a fuller appreciation of the music and a desire to move into the Pavilion. Now we enjoy the richer experience of being surrounded by the music in an entirely different way. We feel blessed to have had this experience and we want to share it with others."
