Leelanau Summer Music Festival

In light of the current projections for the COVID-19 pandemic we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Season of in-person performances. The most important consideration in this decision was the health and safety of our patrons, performing artists, and staff. We plan to present the artists planned for 2020 in the summer of 2021.

While the joy, inspiration, and interconnectedness that in-person concerts provide cannot be fully replicated online, we will post links to performances of our past artists as a hopeful reminder of that experience. Stay tuned to for those offerings. We are also exploring the possibility of presenting live virtual performances and will communicate directly with you to announce those.

Even though this summer’s in-person performances have been canceled, we have some year-round expenses and will need to raise money for the 2021 Season. Please consider making a donation to support the Festival by clicking here. As a thank-you for donations of $100 or more you will be invited to the 2021 Donor Soirée.

We are looking forward to seeing you in 2021!
