Midsummer Mozart Festival

A beloved Bay Area institution, the Midsummer Mozart Festival was founded in 1974 by George Cleve and a regional consortium of classical musicians. Thirty-eight years later, the Festival is the only music festival in North America dedicated exclusively to Mozart. Under the baton of Maestro Cleve, the Festival presents a critically-acclaimed summer concert season featuring renowned international soloists as well as distinguished local artists, with a dedication to fresh and intelligent interpretation of the work of this most enduring and universally loved composer. Our mission embraces both performances of the highest artistic excellence, and cultivation of new audiences, including young people, to assure the future appreciation of great music, and the arts.
