Winery dinner tickets are separate from concert tickets

This summer the Festival will celebrate our 5th season in Sonoma with a tribute to the extraordinary Salonnières of the 19th Century. These powerful women were the influencers of their day. They curated fantastic events in their homes by bringing together great performers, composers, and thinkers; helped shape the musical taste of 19th-century Europe; and launched the careers of outstanding composers whose music we still enjoy.

World-renowned violinist Rachel Barton Pine will join us on our second weekend of concerts in music by Franck and Chausson. Other highlights will include Stravinsky's classic Three Pieces for String Quartet, and other works by Mozart, Schumann, and Brahms.

Our second annual Blattner Lecture Series will feature both new and familiar star lecturers who will explore the social and musical context of the 19th-century salon. This year all lectures are free (separate tickets not needed).

Sip wine and enjoy the Sonoma vista while mingling with the artists on the patio after concerts. Each reception features a different local winery pouring their finest for you to taste. And feel free to picnic on the patio before concerts.

Enjoy a delightful dinner at Valley of the Moon Winery's Madrone Estate, just five minutes away, on July 14 or 21. Our musicians will welcome you there with a special brief performance.
