Mission Statement: To enrich the culture life of Sioux Falls and surrounding area by presenting musical events and providing educational opportunities to the community.

The aims of the Dakota Sky Foundation are to enrich the already thriving cultural life of Sioux Falls; to preserve and promote the monumental legacy of classical music, both for classical-music concert-goers and also for the next generation of listeners, making classical music accessible and inviting while maintaining the highest standard of performance, stressing the universal human experience inherent in the music: the emotions, the joys, the tragedies, the life-stories written into the masterpieces of the classical composers, to which everyone may relate.
