The Methow Valley Chamber Music Festival is a highly-anticipated summer event in the life of our Valley, as it has been for 25 years. Hundreds of locals and tourists flock to Signal Hill Ranch to hear stellar performances by world-class musicians. Scores more attend free outreach concerts sponsored by local businesses.
But the Festival is more than the music. It’s the experience. The beauty of the mountain vistas. The camaraderie of friends. Good food and wine. Laughing. Talking. Hugging. Watching the stars. Meeting the musicians around the firepit. Welcoming artists into our homes.
Summer concerts to resume in 2022
We look forward to resuming the Festival experience in its full glory, and are saddened that it will not happen in 2021. Due to the uncertainty surrounding the state’s reopening plans, the Board has decided to cancel the 2021 Summer Concert Series.
We will continue to monitor reopening progress and will let you know when we can start up again.
Finances stable… no fundraising this year
Thanks to prudent fiscal planning, your Festival is in good financial shape for the foreseeable future. We will not solicit donations or apply for grants this year, and look forward to resuming normal operations in 2022.
