Celebrating 50 Years!

Since 1972, the Sitka Music Festival (formerly Sitka Summer Music Festival) has been Alaska’s premier classical music festival, presenting exquisite music in the pristine setting of Southeast Alaska and throughout the state. The finest musicians from around the world gather in this rarefied paradise for concerts and events that will challenge and excite your senses.

A month of live and virtual concerts and events are being planned for your enjoyment.  Details about our 2021 guest artists and concert programs will be posted here soon.  Tickets will be made available once our schedule is confirmed.

We are pleased to announce our weekly schedule for 2021:

Wednesdays – Outdoor Concert

6:30pm – June 9, 16 and 23.  Location TBD.

Fridays & Saturdays – Formal Evening Concerts

5:30pm and 8:00pm at Harrigan Centennial Hall

June 11, 12, 18, 19, 24 and 25 (Please note: Evening Concerts for the last week are on Thursday and Friday)

In an effort to help mitigate concerns due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we will be offering two concerts (same program) per evening with limited capacity.  There will be no pre-concert artist interview or intermission.  There will be a virtual concert preview offered each week as well.  Please stay tuned for details!
