Why Donate?

Your gift makes the music happen!

Presenting world-class music in the beautiful, natural setting of the Methow Valley is our most visible activity, but we do much more. Your Festival brings the music to valley residents and visitors through open rehearsals, free community events, and youth educational programs.

We seek to keep ticket prices affordable for patrons living in our small rural community. As a result, ticket prices at our event cover only one-quarter of our operating costs, even when we sell out. Your generous gifts make up the difference. We sincerely thank everyone who shares our commitment to keeping fine music affordable and accessible in our area.
