Staunton Music Festival has always had a mission to present a compelling mix of music from the past 600 years to show those works in new and interesting relations.  To further that goal, we developed "Perspectives", a series of short videos that will take you deeper inside the music we perform.  Videos will feature SMF performers, composers, and historians sharing their insights about the music, recollections about specific performances they have given at the festival, and broader historical context in which music is created.



Each "Perspective" video will include links to related content from our video archive, including full concert performances.  All videos are available for viewing at any time, so explore at your leisure!



** Special thanks to our video producer, Stewart Searle, for countless hours of creative work and devotion to SMF **
