Hosted by Maestro Brett Mitchell, the annual fundraising party features performances by advanced Young Artists Scholarship recipients: Mateo Garza, violin; Gabriel Reed, piano; Lucinda Mone, mezzo-soprano; Jacob Nenow, piano; Matthias Santucci, piano; and alumnus John Fawcett, violin.

The cost to attend is $100 per person, and includes hearty hors d’oeuvres and complimentary wine and soft drinks, and the fabulous performances.

Raise the Baton highlights unique opportunities to discover and sponsor “the elements of music” — guest artists, orchestra musicians, individual concerts and musical works, solo parts, travel costs, and more. The auction and sponsorship opportunities will be hosted by local personalities Dr. Stephen Marshall and Brett Bizik.

Throughout its 29-year history, Sunriver Music Festival’s Young Artists Scholarship program has awarded over $700,000 in scholarships to exceptional young classical music students from throughout Central Oregon. Raise the Baton will also help to fund the new Young Listeners’ Guild free ticket program.
