Festival Mozaic is a celebration of five centuries of music held year-round in spectacular venues on California’s picturesque Central Coast. From Bach and beyond to Mozart and more, our world-class Festival presents diverse programs and dynamic international artists in chamber music and orchestral concerts, early music ensembles, and unique performances that combine classical training with jazz and world music.
Founded in 1971 as the San Luis Obispo Mozart Festival,Festival Mozaic is one of the oldest and most respected classical music festivals in the West. Taking place in July, with additional concerts throughout the year, the Festival offers more than 30 events in San Luis Obispo County’s most charismatic spaces. We are supported by a large, diverse and loyal audience base that includes locals and visitors who travel from many surrounding areas to attend.
The Festival’s programs are designed and led by dynamic music director, Scott Yoo, a New York-based virtuoso violinist and conductor. Maestro Yoo conducts orchestras and performs worldwide, consistently representing Festival Mozaic throughout the world. He is in residence at the Festival approximately six weeks annually.
