Thanks to our patrons, donors and volunteers who made the 2015 Bear Valley Music Festival a smashing success. We hope to have you back in 2016!
Maestro Michael Morgan and the Bear Valley Music Festival presented a dazzling 2015 concert lineup with such distinguished guest artists as cellist Emil Miland, the Del Sol String Quartet, pianists Olga Kern and Sara Davis Buechner in works by Beethoven, Saint-Saëns, Elgar, Dvořák, Schubert, Mozart and Stravinsky.
We celebrated Frank Sinatra’s 100th Birthday with Chicago’s award-winning entertain Ron Hawking in the show His Way, and took a stroll down Memory Lane with a colorful, sequined tribute to Elton John by Kenny Metcalf.
Our sensuous gala, Night in Havana, was held in support of the 2016 Festival with wine, fine dining and jazz starring the incomparable Paula West.
County Line Trio returned to Bear Valley with a musical tribute to the Kingston Trio, and we were delighted to hear the rising stars of American folk music the T Sisters as featured on the iconic NPR radio show A Prairie Home Companion.
Once again, Dawn Harms was the star of Bear Valley’s hilarious, educational and free family concert.
