A unique vision

Close your eyes and picture…

The very best musicians from around the country, collaborating with soloists and guest artists from around the world…

Under the joyous baton of Maestro Alasdair Neale…

Music soaring from an acoustic gem of a Pavilion to meet the Aspens, Douglas Firs, and Black Cottonwoods of the surrounding mountains…

A musical town green that welcomes all: serious music lovers, casual listeners, families with children (and dogs), and those looking for the perfect date night…

And robust music education programs for young musicians…

 

Now picture…

That this rare and special coming together of music and nature is free to all, without logistical or financial barriers, thanks to the generous and ongoing support of the entire Sun Valley community…

 

The result…

Nothing like you’ll find elsewhere. Enjoy!

Mission

The mission of the Sun Valley Music Festival is to perform exceptional, free-admission classical music concerts that inspire and enrich lives through dynamic, engaging artistic programming and to provide music education programs for youth and adults.

“When we thought about moving here from the East Coast

We were excited about the spectacular setting and all the outdoor activities, but we didn't want to give up our big city arts and culture, and especially our beloved symphony. Imagine how thrilled we were when we discovered we could have both, thanks to the incredible summer music festival this community has created. The quality of the music-making here makes us proud to call ourselves locals."
