Each season Staunton Music Festival's artistic director, Carsten Schmidt, orchestrates an eclectic combination of programs, covering 600 years of exceptional music from the Middle Ages to commissioned premieres. We realize that music lovers go to concerts for many different reasons. One of those reasons is a chance to hear new interpretations of beloved masterworks; another is to discover unexpected treasures from the past and the present. If you are eager to hear a certain work, or perhaps just looking for music by a favorite composer, the Repertoire list below will guide you to everything being performed in Staunton this season.
