Summer Festival: Free Community Events


The 2017 Free Community Events series is generously sponsored by


Midday Mini-Concerts


Back by popular demand, the Midday Mini-Concert series offers you a chance to see the Festival artists in laid-back performances at venues throughout San Luis Obispo County.  Concertgoers of all ages are welcome and the cost to attend is entirely up to you. These “pay what you wish” concerts last no longer than one hour and will give you a chance to see the musicians in a casual performance environment.


While these concerts are free to attend, reservations are required and can be made online or by calling (805) 781-3009.

Master Classes


Festival Mozaic is proud to partner with the San Luis Obispo Youth Symphony and the Cal Poly Music Department to offer free master classes to the musical youth of San Luis Obispo County.  Throughout the six-year history of this partnership, 26 master classes have been presented.  See the bottom section of this page for a complete history of these classes.



All master classes are FREE to participate in and to attend!  Come watch talented young students perform as they are guided and instructed by Festival artists, who are gifted teachers in addition to gifted performers. These classes are fun and informative for musicians and non-musicians alike!
