Your generous support makes it possible for the Festival to connect Alaskans with great artists and bring amazing music to rural and urban areas of the state.

Youth are mentored each summer through lectures, private lessons and master classes. Guest musicians make frequent visits to Alaska school music programs, youth orchestras and preschools.

Immersion Courses bring talented emerging cellists from around the world to hone their skills.

Students from preschool through master-level music programs are the focus of the Festival’s education outreach efforts.

People have access to Festival Musicians from concert halls to nursing homes, from parks to shelters. People feel connected through the experience and energy of the music.

You make this happen with your generous gift. Keep the music flowing. Contribute now!
