Salem Orchestra Summerfest

Join us for our first annual Salem Orchestra Summerfest. This fundraising event will feature live music, games, food, art and a silent auction. Bring a chair or a blanket, lounge in the grass and enjoy the idyllic winery views and entertainment we have in store.

Our goal is to raise enough money through this event to fund our next season for 2019-2020. If you are unable to attend, please feel free to make your tax deductible donation here on our website.

Salem Orchestra is a 501(c)3 non-profit with a mission to create and connect communities through diverse musical performances and educational outreach. We aim not only to make great music, but to act as a hub of arts and culture in Salem through mutual-support and partnership with other like-minded organizations, businesses, and individuals in pursuit of our shared values. Earlier this year Salem Orchestra was able to produce two concerts and our first ever Salem Orchestra Music Academy summer camp for local students. 

We appreciate all of the support and look forward to continuing a long tradition of the arts in the Willamette Valley.
