Performing arts inspire, delight and engage people of all ages.
Sun Valley Museum of Art is committed to bringing world-class music, dance and film to the Wood River Valley, providing exceptional arts and cultural experiences for the community. These performances enhance the life of our community by offering patrons a view outside the valley and introducing them to new artists and genres as well as performers who are nationally and, in some cases, internationally renowned.
A highlight of the Sun Valley summer season, the Summer Concert Series gives our community the chance to come together to engage with performing artists and celebrate through music. This series presents both nationally and regionally known musicians in a gorgeous outdoor venue in beautiful Ketchum, Idaho.
2020 Summer Concert Series Cancelled
It is with heavy hearts, that due to the uncertainty around Covid-19 and in prioritizing the safety of our community and concert attendees, the hard decision has been made to cancel this summer’s outdoor concert series with Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals, Steve Miller Band, and Gregory Alan Isakov.
For the first time in over 40 years, Sun Valley Museum of Art will not be gathering our community for outdoor live concerts.
While we’re devastated over the whole situation, we’re strategizing how we can continue connecting you to live performances, so stay tuned!
Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Concerts & Performances FAQs
All seats are reserved for Sun Valley Museum of Art's winter Performing Arts concerts. Series purchasers get first access to tickets and the sooner you purchase, the better your seats. Concerts will have a premium seating area as well as a regular priced seating area. Tickets cannot be refunded or exchanged.
Please remember that SVMoA’s events are shared experiences. We ask that you be respectful to those seated near you and to the performers, staff and volunteers. Photography, smoking, talking during performances, and the use of cell phones are not permitted. Patrons who are disruptive, disrespectful or inebriated before, during or after a performance, will be asked to leave the venue and will not receive a refund.
We request that you arrive at least 10–15 minutes before curtain time to find your seats and purchase concessions, if you wish! At some of our venues, parking is a short walk from the venue. Please plan accordingly.
No video, photography or recording of any kind is permitted at SVMoA's concerts. Professional photographers must contact Sun Valley Museum of Art in advance to receive permission to take photos at our concerts. Permission may be granted, but photographers must follow SVMoA’s guidelines or risk being asked to leave and/or lose the right to photograph future events.
Please be sure to check the concert location before heading out, and contact us if you have any questions. We use a variety of locations around the valley for our indoor concerts. The Sun Valley Opera House has ample parking in the lot in front of the Sun Valley Lodge. The Argyros has on-street parking nearby, but please do not park in the Village Market parking lot. Wood River High School Performing Arts Theater is located in Hailey and has a parking lot in front of the Community Campus building. If this lot is full, there may be overflow parking available in the high school lots to the north of the Community Campus. The Liberty Theatre has free street parking throughout Hailey.
Yes. We do not allow babes in arms for our performing arts series concerts, and children who do attend must have their own purchased seat. Often for our Performing Arts Series we offer specially priced tickets for students 18 and under. Due to the nature of our concerts being intimate, evening events, our shows are not recommended for infants or children under 8 years old. Please contact us 208.726.9491 for more information about SVMoA and Company of Fools events that are appropriate for kids.
Our venues are ADA accessible, but due to the age of certain venues, some have special concerns. Please contact us at 208.726.9491 to let us know how we can best accommodate you.
Performing Arts tickets are not exchangeable or refundable. If you cannot use your tickets, you may give them to a friend or return them to Sun Valley Museum of Art before the show for a tax-deductible contribution equal to the price you paid for the tickets (excluding ticketing fees, which are not tax deductible).
If you’ve ordered tickets online or through our box office, they will be held at will call at Sun Valley Museum of Art. You may pick up your tickets during regular business hours (Mon–Fri, 9am–5pm, and Saturdays during February, March, July and August, 11am–5pm). If you are unable to pick up your tickets in advance, they’ll be at will call at the venue on the day of the event. For some of our events, “Print at Home” is an option. If you print your tickets at home via the “Barcoded ETicket,” you do not need to pick them up at will call.
For reasons beyond our control (e.g., weather, artist scheduling, illness), shows may be canceled or postponed. If this occurs, we will contact ticket holders via email and post announcements on our website and Facebook page to alert patrons of any changes and what SVMoA will do in this particular situation.
