Since 1971, Festival Mozaic’s visiting artists have come together with you, our audience, to create orchestral concerts, chamber music, classical crossover events and engaging informative and interactive musical experiences to inspire the music lover in each of us, from novice to aficionado. Festival Mozaic offers you unique ways to experience the music and get closer to the artists who bring that music to life.
The annual Summer Music Festival takes place over two weeks in July and includes offerings in four signature series: Chamber, Orchestra, Fringe, and Notable Encounters (described below), plus Mid-Day Mini Concerts, Master Classes, Open Rehearsals, Pre-Concert Lectures, and more. The 2017 summer season of Festival Mozaic presented 28 events in venues all over the county, ranging from private homes to state-of-the-art concert halls in locations from Avila Beach all the way to Shandon.
