2021 Summer concerts (including the Gala), outreach events, and education programs will take place in-person this summer. Protocols on attending will be available on the Festival website in early July to allow time to address safety needs at the time programming begins.
The Sun Valley Music Festival (formerly The Sun Valley Summer Symphony) is arguably the best free admission concert in the entire country. Combined with its year round education programs, this has given it an elite reputation among all music programs in the world. Alasdair Neale, a world class music director and composer, has been director for the Sun Valley Music Festival for 25 years now, and every year it has gotten better and better.
Previous Years lineup has included Lang Lang, James Ehnes, Jamie Barton and Angela Meade. Time For Three, a genre-defying classical trio, will perform through their three year partnership with the festival. The Sun Valley Music Festival is nationally renowned for being one of the best free admission symphonies in the world, so I would normally say “buy you’re tickets today,” but you don’t have to! All the concerts are free except the special Gala performance here.
