Impact & financials

Sun Valley Music Festival—a transformative, inspiring force in Sun Valley—and beyond

One way to measure the Festival’s impact each year is in the delighted faces of audience members, musicians, students, and the community during concerts and education programs. That was a bit tougher this past summer because the groups were so much smaller and the interactions mostly online. But there are other ways to measure impact, too. This year’s Annual Report includes photos, numbers, and videos from the Summer and Winter Seasons to help tell the story.

All of these concerts and education programs exist only because of the donors who value bringing live music into the lives of children and adults in the community, whether online or in person, and always for free. Your support makes it all possible.
