Biography
For 16 years the Staunton Music Festival has been welcoming classical music audiences to enjoy world-class performances of chamber music, opera, and world premieres within the timeless setting of historic downtown Staunton, Virginia.  SMF offers events year-round, though the highlight is certainly the nine-day Summer Sounds in late August, which include formal concerts, free outreach events, Young Artist and Emerging Composer programs, pre-concert lectures, masterclasses, a Gala dinner and concert, and an opera finale in the famed Blackfriars Playhouse.

Staunton Music Festival’s mission is to offer exceptional chamber music performed by international caliber musicians at historic venues throughout Staunton in a way that is accessible to all. Concert programs are innovative and seek a balance between old and new music. SMF musicians include local, national, and international artists, many of whom are acclaimed for their knowledge of historical performance traditions. We believe in the power of live classical music to transform the region and all of its residents.
