Coastal Concerts enriches our community by presenting live concerts, outreach, and educational activities by renowned musicians, encompassing rich traditions of the past while reflecting cultural diversity in the evolution of classical music.



Our community is enriched, inspired and transformed through music.

  • Enrich concert presentations with information, dialogue, and storytelling

  • Refresh the repertoire (music, composers and performers) annually in order to cultivate new and repeat attendees

II. Be Involved in the Cultural Community At Large 

  • Create and curate multiple ways to experience the art form while building a relationship between our audience, the musicians, and Coastal Concerts

  • Act as a leader within the local arts community, participate in the state and national arts conversation

  • Design opportunities for visiting musicians to interact with the community

  • Provide outreach performances for school-aged audiences, focused community groups, and those whose opportunities to experience the arts are limited


III. Be Good Stewards

  • Maintain financial stability year to year
