jun 16 – 18 & 23 – 25
The St. Augustine Music Festival – the USA’s largest free classical music festival, is celebrating its 10th season in June. Hailed as “a gift to the city,” it has gained national acclaim for world-class concerts in the acoustically superb Cathedral Basilica. Music by Mozart, Bach, Tchaikovsky, Copland, Beethoven and other classical composers are on the programs this year, along with the debut of a St. Augustine-inspired piece by Northeast Florida composer Bob Moore. Among returning favorites: celebrated pianist Scott Watkins with an encore performance of his February Carnegie Hall recital, and guitar virtuoso Stephen Robinson.
Six concerts over two weekends: June 16 – 18 & 23 – 25, at 7:30 p.m. www.StAugustineMusicFestival.org
