Today, with the help of thousands of donors, we have grown into one of the nation’s finest music festivals encompassing a summer and winter concert series, The Met: Live in HD broadcasts, and comprehensive education and outreach programs.

HOME ON THE RANGE – A Housing Solution for Musicians
Our visiting musicians are the heart and soul of the Festival. Providing their home while they are here in the valley is the Festival’s largest single expense – an expense that has gone up, up, up over the years!
The Festival can cap its housing cost permanently by acquiring summer ownership of housing for 60 musicians. Owning that much housing would reduce costs significantly year after year. This core housing will work like an endowment that provides financial stability, the prerequisite for exciting artistic endeavors over the next 50 years.
Thank you to all donors whose gifts enabled us to meet our $2,000,000 matching challenge and qualify for a $2,500,000 grant for musician housing.
