This program provides the opportunity to enjoy music and drama presented by a company of outstandingly talented professional artists, in a lovely elevated setting of gently rolling hills. All is accessible by walking a few blocks, no getting on and off buses,from a comfortable hotel in a small town. Relaxing and refreshing, a treat for all senses.


This is a very sophisticated music festival! In fact, it is like a music festival for musicians where composers premiere their works and the many of the works performed are outside of the generic classical repertoire.


This is an exceptional music festival. We learned about instruments we were not familiar with, we were delight with the mix of early and contemporary music, the venues, and the quality of the musicianship was outstanding.


This is a great program! We get to hear world class musicians who are having as much fun as the participants. It was our third consecutive year at the program and it will be an annual event for us.


An amazing amount of music presented by superbly talented musicians in beautiful settings.


Older and physically handicapped people had difficulty in going from the hotel to the venues and from venue to venue. We has two individuals in wheelchairs and some in their nineties. This particular program is especially attractive to them, so some accommodation should be made for them.


Outstanding program for the music lover -- particularly for fans of the Baroque era


The Staunton Music Festival is an overlooked treasure. Performances of very early music up through and including recently composed works of today are all done at the highest level of excellence. Vocal music, early symphonic, modern and chamber works are all represented at this festival.
