Raise the Baton is Sunriver Music Festival’s premier fundraising party of the year! This lively event helps to raise vital funds for Young Artists Scholarships and the Festival’s world-class concerts.

Hosted by Maestro Brett Mitchell, the event features fun opportunities to bid and sponsor “elements of music”: guest artists, orchestra musicians, individual concerts, musical works and more.

Four Young Artists Scholarship recipients will perform: Mateo Garza, violin; Gabriel Reed, piano; Lucinda Mone, mezzo-soprano; and Matthias Santucci, piano.

Local personalities Dr. Stephen Marshall and Brett Bizik will serve as emcees keeping the party going with a silent auction and the popular tradition of auctioning the season artwork—this year’s “Twilight Glow” by local artist Robert Allan Hooper.

Celebrating the 29th year of the Young Artists Scholarship program, Sunriver Music Festival has awarded over $700,000 to Central Oregon music students. Thanks to your donations, we are also able to create and support music education classes and programs in South Deschutes County schools in addition to presenting world-class musicians in the Festival Orchestra each summer.

The cost to attend is $100 per person, and includes hearty hors d’oeuvres and complimentary wine and soft drinks. |  buy tickets

We hope you will join us in keeping the arts alive and vibrant in Central Oregon!
