The Music Festival of the Gorge builds community connections and a love for music, by showcasing local musicians to support arts experiences in our schools and community.


Thanks to you, together we have raised over $90K since 2015.

The Music Festival of the Gorge is a fund

raising concert for the Matt Klee Memorial Fund,

benefitting music programs in Hood River area schools.

Matt Klee was a beloved Hood River resident, active

community member, outdoor enthusiast and music lover.

Matt's friends and family are keeping his spirit alive by

supporting programs that inspire children to experience

the power of music.

The Live Like Matt Memorial Fund works directly with Arts in Education of the Gorge to provide music education in primary and middle schools in Hood River County.


Matt Klee was a musician and music lover his entire life. Your support allows local musicians to grow, and honors the life of a great man. Thank you!
