Festival Description

Each August, world-class musicians travel to Staunton, a small Virginia city that is celebrated for its culture, history, and beauty. The musicians come together to participate in the Staunton Music Festival (SMF) – one of the mid- Atlantic’s region’s most innovative classical music festivals. “Summer Sounds” is the weeklong flagship concert series for the festival. It is a nine-day celebration of vocal, choral, and instrumental music. More than 50 musicians perform - they hail from Germany, Russia, Netherlands, Canada, Finland, Austria, France, and the United States.

Jason Stell, Executive Director of SMF, says it is unusual for a small festival to be able to attract acclaimed musicians from around the world and to support such innovative programming. “It’s rare to see this kind of musical series outside of New York, Chicago or Europe,” he said. Acclaimed vocalists and instrumental musicians from across Europe and the US.
