A message from James and Richard

Dear Friends and Supporters of Music on the Strait,

We are so thrilled to present our second annual season of Music on the Strait. Due to overwhelming support during our inaugural season, we have expanded to five concerts spanning the last two weeks of August. However, ticket sales cover only a fraction of our operating expenses and we hope you will consider making a donation to Music on the Strait to ensure this festival will be here for years to come.  

We are pleased to announce that donations above $250 guarantee early access to subscription and single tickets.  You will also receive an exclusive MOTS poster designed by celebrated Port Angeles-born artist Tom Eykemans. 


We are also seeking to expand our bedrock support by seeking 2019 individual musician sponsors as well as contributors to our newly created Legacy Fund, which aims to ensure the long-term future of Music on the Strait—a fund that will be looking beyond our annual production costs. Sustaining Sponsors will have unique opportunities to engage with our tight-knit MOTS community and Legacy Fund Founders will be invited to a special dinner with festival musicians.


If you have questions or ideas about other ways to contribute—through estate plans, gifts of stock or other managed funds, or other donations—please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We are grateful for your support and happy to work with you to make this festival an enduring feature of the Olympic Peninsula.


We consider you part of our MOTS family. It is because of you that our inaugural 2018 season was such a success. We hope you will consider renewing your commitment to Music on the Strait’s future!


With our deepest gratitude,

James Garlick and Richard O'Neill, Artistic Directors
