Music For All The Seasons:
Celebrating 25 Seasons of Water Music
We have invited back artists who have been particular favorites over the last number of years, either at the Festival, at Jazz and Oysters, or at other Peninsula events. Each concert will feature music in keeping with our theme of “Music for all the Seasons”. For example,Sans Souci will play Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons”, and all of the other artists will include some seasonal fare, all of which should be familiar and well loved.
Browse each individual day’s concerts to select events you wish to attend, or purchase a season pass, enabling you to attend Friday evening, Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon. Oysterville concert tickets are purchased separately and seating is limited – so be sure to get yours right away. Reception tickets are also sold separately.
