The Concert Division of the PAFE Festival includes five free concerts that feature the most outstanding artists from the Festival. Performers are by invitation only from those who win a First Place award in their class. A performer can discover the real magic of music when they perform for an audience and hear the warmth of the applause.

All concerts are in the Sanctuary of St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church.

These concerts are free and open to the public. It is part of our appreciation to the community for its support. Contributions to the food bank and donations to PAFE are appreciated.

Eastside Artists Concerts

These concerts feature First Place winners from all Solo and Ensemble classes of all ages. Each concert provides a wide array of exceptional Eastside Artists from age 9 to over 60. There are violinists, pianists, singers with musical theatre songs, cellists, string quartets, flutes, perhaps a bassoon, and one or more string quartets. In general, each concert features about twelve performers, and every concert is different.
