A Message from SAMF’s Artistic Director, Jorge Peña

“A VIRTUAL CELEBRATION OF WORLD-CLASS MUSIC”

While circumstances do not allow us to perform in front of a live audience this year, we are pleased to announce our 2020 St. Augustine Music Festival Program – A Virtual Celebration of World-Class Music.* This year’s festival performances will remain true to the SAMF brand and keep everyone safe at the same time. Our celebration of world-class music will feature musicians from across the US and Jacksonville Symphony for six beautiful nights of music. Each specially selected program will be released on our scheduled festival dates on our Facebook and YouTube pages, available for all to access and enjoy! Please visit our website for more information, and be sure to share our program information with friends and family!
