Sitka Music Festival re-caps Winter Classics schedule AND announces Online Winter Auction/Fundraiser:

…our Winter Classics 2024 tour kicked off in Ketchikan. We visited Ketchikan High School where Metropolitan Opera soprano Danielle Talamantes led students in a vocal warm up and breathing exercises. Following this, she presented a concert of Art Song and Zuill Bailey performed a pop-up at the Ketchikan Arts and Humanities Council. Over the next few days our artists will visit 3 Anchorage Schools, 1 Sitka School, and present two masterclasses to students at UA Anchorage… All together we will have reached over 600 Alaskan school students by the end of tour, and we will have served over 600 audience members.

I am writing today to let you know about an exciting way to help us continue (our) work… This year, the Board of Directors has designed an Online Auction to raise funds to further our mission of providing the finest classical music experience in Alaska through performance and education.  And, we have secured an anonymous matching $10,000 donation that will match funds raised through the auction (including donations) dollar for dollar up to $10,000. The list of items includes experiences, art work, and a private house concert by our Grammy-winning Artistic Director, Zuill Bailey. Please consider bidding on an item, and, if you haven’t bought your tickets yet, this is a weekend of music you don’t want to miss!
