Mission Statement



The mission of the Twisted Oak Music Festival is to create a self-sustaining classical music festival that will champion local art, and serve the Baton Rouge community.


Four Pillars: 

Art is Spiritual:
We believe that God is the ultimate creator, and that being made in His image, we are called to create art. 

Art is Entrepreneurial: 
We believe that musicians and artists should act entrepreneurially, and should compete in the free market.

Art is Serving: 
We believe that art is not merely self-expression, but is created for the purpose of serving others.

Art is Community:
The grass is greener here. We want to be leaders that shape our city, and create a culture that benefits those around us. Be the art you want to see in the world!
