Take a Chance

The Festival is thrilled to offer a once in a lifetime chance to have the Grammy Award winning Ying Quartet perform for you and your guests. Only 100 chances at $100 will be sold. The Ying Quartet will perform at the winner’s home or selected venue at a mutually agreed time during this summer’s Festival, June 28-August 4.

The winning number will be drawn at the Festival’s Scholarship Gala on June 27th and the proceeds from the Raffle will fund student scholarships at the Festival. The raffle winner does not need to be present at the Gala.

“This is a unique opportunity to support meaningful music education in Maine and to host a world-renowned string quartet in your living room,” says Lorna Flynn, Chair of the Raffle Committee. “We are proud to support the past, present, and future of classical music and bring musically gifted students to the Festival regardless of their financial situation.”

The mission of the Festival, founded 53 years ago, is to prepare gifted young musicians from around the world for a life in music through study with world-class artists, and to present classical music in concerts performed to the highest classical standards. With your support, the Festival can continue to train gifted young musicians and present superb classical music to Maine communities and beyond.
