Mill Valley Chamber Music Society

Mill Valley Chamber Music Society, a non-profit organization, was founded in 1973. It is run entirely by volunteers; thus the preponderance of subscription and donation monies are available for high-quality musical programs.

The 2015 program was emceed by Jan Yanehiro, Mill Valley resident and former co-host of KPIX-TV’s “Evening Magazine” program for 14 years.

Produced by a volunteer board of directors, under the auspices of the Mill Valley Arts Commission, the annual Milley Awards is a star-studded event that usually sells out. The Milley is a bronze statue sculpted by John Libberton of Sausalito.

The Milleys are sponsored by the Mill Valley Arts Commission and produced by the Milley Awards Board of Directors, a volunteer community group. Nominations are open throughout the year and judges change annually. The award honors those who, through their accomplishments in the arts, have brought honor to the Mill Valley community. They have done this through their talents and actions in the state, national or international arenas.
