Programs are eclectic and feature chamber music from the Middle Ages to world premieres, performed by vocalists and instrumentalists from across Europe and the U.S. From the opening "Midsummer Ball", complete with dinner, concert, Cabaret-style theater and dancing, to the grand period-instrument performance of Bach's "St. John Passion", the SMF presents more than 20 classical concerts that are not to be missed. Free pre-concert talks and special offers with numerous downtown restaurants and hotels make for an amazing festival experience.
