The St. Augustine Music Festival (SAMF) returns for its 13th summer season of free classical music concerts in the historic Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine.
Six performances are staged over two weekends, (Thursday, Friday, and Saturday), June 20-22 and June 27-29, with all concerts starting at 7:30 pm. More details at staugustinemusicfestival.org
Founded in 2007 by Jacksonville musicians Jorge A. Peña and Jin Kim-Peña, the festival welcomes audiences as varied as its concert programs. Classical music “newbies” mingle with seasoned aficionados, true to the festival’s mission to educate, elevate, and entertain all through great music, regardless of ability to pay for a ticket. Individual and corporate donors support the festival financially to keep the concerts free to the public.
SAMF creates world-class concerts with professional musicians of the highest caliber. Many of the musicians are members of the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra. SAMF, the largest, free festival of its kind in the United States, has become a beloved summer “must-do” in Northeast Florida’s cultural life. Its concerts have been featured on National Public Radio’s “Performance Today.”
