“Music is enough for a lifetime, but a lifetime is not enough for music”

— Sergei Rachmaninov

JOIN OUR FAMILY OF SUPPORTERS
World-class musicians and the natural beauty of Orcas Island come together to create something magical – the Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival. It’s a truly unique experience for all who attend, and the memories can last a lifetime.

The Festival has grown to include music education programs for students and community musicians, as well as intimate Salon Concerts, Pre- and Post- Concert Lectures and Music Lovers’ Seminars. None of this would be possible without our donors.

If you would like to ensure the success of Orcas Island Chamber Music for future generations, please consider making a planned gift . Board members, Artistic Director Aloysia Friedmann or Executive Director Victoria Parker will meet with you to discuss the various options available:

The Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival Endowment Fund was established with a cornerstone gift from the estate of Rosalie Chantiny, matched by a gift from the Valerie and William Anders Foundation.
