Each August, homeowners in the Sunriver/Bend area open their homes to Sunriver Music Festival musicians. Housing musicians is a rewarding experience and lasting friendships are formed. Your housing partnership ensures that the Festival can continue to present a world-class musical experience for the community each summer.

This summer, musicians arrive Friday, August 9 to attend their first rehearsal the morning of Saturday, August 10. Most musicians will depart Saturday, August 24. Housing is appreciated for all or partial time.

Here are some ideas on how you can help make the music happen:

  • House a musician in your guest quarters
  • Sponsor a rental house/condo or hotel room
  • Sponsor a musician of your choice
  • Sponsor an orchestra section of your choice
  • Donate hotel or airline points

Benefits for housing a musician include:

  • 2024 Sunriver Music Festival poster
  • $100 Sunriver Music Festival gift certificate
  • New friendships
  • Sunriver Music Festival is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Substantial tax benefits may be available for Adopting a Musician.
