The Lifelong Journey

Music education isn’t just for kids! Adult education takes the spotlight with The Sun Valley Summer Symphony.

Education is at the core of The Sun Valley Summer Symphony. The more you know about music, the more you know about The Symphony, the more you’ll want to know.

Upbeat with Alasdair


Held at The Community Library in the winter and spring each year, music director Alasdair Neale uses the season programming as a springboard for discussion and Q&A in these informative talks. Visit The Education Events page for specific dates and times.

Lawn Chats

These 30-minute chats offer an insightful, entertaining introduction to the concert 45 minutes before the performance. Lawn Chats are held on the north end of the lawn next to the Paver Bar for Orchestra Festival concerts at the Sun Valley Pavilion.

Don’t want to leave your seat in the Pavilion? Need to stay with friends and family on the lawn? Listen to Lawn Chats on your mobile device:
