The 2020 Sitka Music Festival was cancelled – of course – due to the COVID19 pandemic. Although it was strange and sad to not host our usual 4 weeks of public concerts and events, the board and staff presented six new virtual concerts performed by artists in their homes across the country, and hosted a successful drive-through crab feed fundraiser.
THANK YOU to our season sponsors: ALPS Federal Credit Union, Shee Atika Incorporated, Sitka Summer Music Festival Foundation, Sitka Alaska Permanent Charitable Trust, National Endowment for the Arts, Alaska State Council on the Arts, Raven Radio, the Daily Sitka Sentinel.
Special THANK YOU to our crab feed sponsors: Arrowhead Transfer and Alaska Marine Lines, plus generous support from SeaMart Quality Foods, Watson Point/Cascade Convenience Center, Sitka Sound Seafoods, Allen Marine, and UAS Sitka Campus.
Although the future of the pandemic casts a lot of uncertainty upon when and how performing artists and audiences can once again meet in person, we are starting the planning process for the 2021 Festival — our 50th anniversary!
