Announcing our 2021 Season!





Early ticket sales have closed, but there's still time to gain access to discounted tickets (25% off) with a donation of $250 or more! You will also receive a 2021 edition MOTS poster featuring celebrated artist Alfredo Arreguin.

NOTE: Pianist Orion Wess, originally scheduled to perform has unexpectedly had to withdraw from MOTS 2021.  Program updates are below. 



Music on the Strait is honored to present the Takács Quartet, considered by many to be the finest string quartet in the world!


The incomparable pianist Jeremy Denk performs Robert Schumann's Piano Quintet with the Takács Quartet. 


We commemorate Beethoven’s belated 250th birthday—featuring his String Trio in G as well his very last piano sonata, composed when he could no longer hear the notes of his piano.


Join us for a rollicking festival finale featuring the pianist Jeremy Denk and the Brahms G minor Piano Quartet.


We are also pleased to share two extra Sunday matinee programs, presented by Concerts in the Barn in Quilcene.

Visit for free or pay-what-you-can tickets.
