Festival Description

The Aston Magna festival is held the beautiful Berkshires of Massachusetts. This is the oldest annual summer festival in America devoted to music performed on period instruments. Under the direction of Daniel Stepner, Artistic Director, Aston Magna’s performances aim to interpret the music of the past as the composer imagined it. Aston Magna has been recognized internationally for nearly three decades for its contributions to the popularization of early music performed using historically accurate instruments and performance practices. These concerts are also heard on Fridays at Bard College, Annandale-On-Hudson, NY
