CLASSICAL CHAMBER MUSIC

ON PERIOD INSTRUMENTS

Eric Zivian, Music Director

Tanya Tomkins, Artistic Director

Valley of the Moon Music Festival was founded in 2015 by fortepianist Eric Zivian and cellist Tanya Tomkins. It is the first and only festival in the U.S. devoted exclusively to presenting the chamber music of the Classical and Romantic eras, performed on period instruments. 

"The soul of great music in the heart of the valley."

Our artists are a group of renowned musicians from around the world specializing in performance on period instruments who are on the faculties of institutions including Juilliard, the Paris Conservatory, and the San Francisco Conservatory.
