Sun Valley Music Festival Announces 38th Summer Season, July 24-August 18, 2022
The largest privately funded, admission-free classical music festival in the United States presents over three weeks of world-class performances this summer in an outdoor alpine setting, led by Music Director Alasdair Neale
This season highlights three of the country’s greatest living composers – Gabriela Lena Frank, Jessie Montgomery, and Kevin Puts – and features performances from renowned guest artists: pianists Daniil Trifonov and George Li, violinist Leila Josefowicz, tenor Nicholas Phan, guest conductor Andy Einhorn, and the genre-defying string trio Time For Three.
The Sun Valley Music Festival is proud to announce details of its upcoming Summer Season, July 24-August 18 at the outdoor, state-of-the-art Sun Valley Pavilion in Idaho. The season features over 14 admission-free concerts alongside a gala fundraising concert and multiple outreach and education events. Since 1985, Festival Orchestra musicians have come together from distinguished ensembles across North America to perform orchestral and chamber concerts each summer.
This year’s massive orchestral repertoire is as vast as Sun Valley’s mountainous setting, ranging from Strauss’s “Alpine Symphony” and familiar works by Beethoven, Brahms, and Tchaikovsky to 20th-century treasures by Lili Boulanger and Stravinsky to a special emphasis on music by living composers. Guest artists include pianists Daniil Trifonov and George Li, violinist Leila Josefowicz, tenor Nicholas Phan, conductor Andy Einhorn, and the genre-defying trio Time For Three.
