Music at Penn’s Woods is a unique summer music festival in the central Pennsylvania region. Showcasing the talents of outstanding community musicians and Penn State faculty, alumni, and students, the festival presents superior musical performances of the great works from the chamber music and orchestral repertories.

The Festival annually presents four full concerts during the last two weeks of June. In addition, Festival musicians participate in "Music at Boal Mansion," a salon evening occurring in the intimate ambiance of the Boal Mansion's ballroom; and "Music in the Gardens: Healing the Soul," an informal garden concert on the grounds of the Penn State Arboretum, co-sponsored by Mt. Nittany Health Systems.

Make A Gift to Music at Penn's Woods

Thanks to you, it is working!

The festival was started with a commitment of support from a small group of enthusiasts in the community and has blossomed into a successful two-week event that has just completed its fourth year. The fact that we started during the worst economic downturn in recent times and, in three short years, became self-supporting is a tribute to you – our donors and volunteers. Your annual gifts and ticket sales, along with business promotions and the work of many dedicated volunteers, have put the festival on a solid foundation. We could not exist without your support.
