Midday Mini-Concerts


The Midday Mini-Concert series offers you a chance to see the Festival artists in laid-back performances at venues throughout San Luis Obispo County.  Concertgoers of all ages are welcome. These “pay what you wish” concerts last no longer than one hour and will give you a chance to see the musicians in a casual performance environment. Click here to learn more or make a reservation.



Master Classes


Festival Mozaic is proud to partner with the San Luis Obispo Youth Symphony and the Cal Poly Music Department to offer free master classes to the musical youth of San Luis Obispo County. Throughout the six-year history of this partnership, 26 master classes have been presented.  See the master classes page for details.



Open Rehearsals


Get a behind-the-scenes glimpse into what it takes to make truly great music.  Hear and watch Scott Yoo and the other Festival artists as they prepare for their concerts.  Be sure to bring the young musicians in your life. The musicians will start and stop, as these events are working rehearsals. You may come and go as you like.
