SELECTING YOUR SEATS
Staunton Music Festival will use fully reserved seating at paid concerts during the 2024 SpringFest and Summer Festival. You will be able to select particular seats in advance and arrive at any time prior to the start, knowing that your individual seats will be held for you. Doors open one hour prior to the performance. All seating at free events and the Recitals held in fall and spring is general admission, unreserved.
All Staunton Music Festival events take place in venues of historic significance with superlative acoustics. Downtown Staunton boasts dozens of churches and the famed Blackfriars Playhouse, which hosts several SMF concerts each season. Occasional events take place in private homes or local businesses after hours.
Staunton Music Festival is happy to offer discounted admission to certain people. Under the "CMY Discount", College students and Military veterans (active and retired) save 50% on ticket purchases, and Youth aged 18 and under attend all regular events for free. In addition, holders of the Public Radio MemberCard may receive 2-for-1 admission to any single event.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to high demand for seating in Tiers 1 and 2, discounted admission can only be applied to seats in Tiers 3 and 4. CMY discounts do not apply to pass purchases.
