Staunton Music Festival

August 16 @ 7:30 pm - August 25 @ 4:00 pm EDT

From August 16-25 Staunton Music Festival welcomes over 80 acclaimed professionals from around the world to perform in 30 events. Multiple concerts daily make for an exhilarating immersion in chamber, vocal, and symphonic music. The days are given over to one-hour, free admission programs, while the evenings come alive with longer, ticketed concerts preceded by special dinners and short lectures. And for those who enjoy music after dark, look for the Nightcap concerts that take place at 10:00 pm in interesting spaces downtown.

All music pre-1850 is performed on historical instruments.  Among the 80+ musicians performing in 2024 are many acclaimed members of the early music world, including: Kris Kwapis, Nina Stern, Geoffrey Burgess, Ingrid Matthews, Elisabeth Axtell, Sarah Darling, Heather Miller Lardin, as well as vocalists Molly Netter, Daniel Moody, Peter Walker, Gene Stenger, Clifton Massey, Edmund Milly and more.  Some featured works include complete Mass in B Minor of Bach, Lully Te Deum, program devoted to music for the new 1830 Graf fortepiano, an Early Keyboard Extravaganza, opening night celebration of Handel, plus everything from Beethoven Symphony No 2 to Schumann’s Liederkreis to new music from Roberto Sierra and Zachary Wadsworth.
