STAUNTON MUSIC FESTIVAL
Hear 75 of the world's most acclaimed musicians performing in 30+ concerts during the annual Staunton Music Festival. SMF offers daily free concerts at noon and ticketed concerts each evening, all in historic venues throughout downtown Staunton, VA, "one of America's great small towns" (Smithsonian Magazine, Travel&Leisure). 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 performance of Handel's opera "Theodora" to the grand period-instrument performance of Bach's St Matthew Passion, the SMF presents more than 30 classical concerts that are not to be missed. Music by Mozart, Mendelssohn, Brahms, Stravinsky, Vivaldi, Bernstein, Piazzolla, Beethoven, and dozens of others composers, including recent music by several composers in residence.
