Each summer, visitors and residents of Green Lake find its beauty enriched by the magical musical events of Green Lake Festival of Music, a celebration of classical music for the whole family.

For 40 years, the Festival has hosted world-renowned musicians, conductors, composers, and rising young stars with concerts at intimate venues that allow audiences to be part of the experience. You’ll not only absorb the music, but also have the opportunity to interact with the musicians as they share their passion and craft through preconcert conversations. You’ll gain a deeper understanding and insight into the compositions.

The Festival provides music mastery through concerts; the chamber music camp, with outstanding faculty artists and 24 select students; and choral activities, including a composer residency. From people who love singing and playing to those who simply enjoy listening to great music, there’s something for everyone.
