Festival Mozaic’s 45th anniversary year was remarkable. Our ticket sales were the highest in many years, our donors were extremely generous and our board grew to 18 active members. But most of all, we were able to present extraordinary music to our audience.

Two weekends of engaging chamber music concerts and events designed to bring you closer to the music. Featuring Scott Yoo, Music Director and Violin and others.
This summer, Festival Mozaic celebrates its 45th anniversary. While our roots as a festival began with Mozart, much of Western music can be traced back to J.S. Bach. With that in mind, our 45th anniversary season will culminate in two performances of J.S. Bach’s Mass in B minor and we are centering this July’s offerings around Bach’s influence. I hope you will join us to enjoy these varied works that span many eras and cultures. They all celebrate a common reverence for the beloved composer J.S. Bach. Join us in beautiful San Luis Obispo County. We look forward to sharing these works of art with you.
