The nationally recognized St. Augustine Music Festival returns with a stage full of celebrated guest artists for its 11th season of free classical concerts in the Cathedral Basilica, 38 Cathedral Place, downtown St. Augustine.

All six concerts start at 7:30 p.m., playing out over two weekends, June 15-17 and June 22-24.

Admission is FREE. The popularity of the series, however, means seating is limited and some concerts may require a (free) seating pass. Go to for details.

THE PLAYERS Championship is sponsoring the St. Augustine Music Festival’s opening night concert. The June 15 concert will feature violinist Nigel Armstrong and a program of Bach, Stravinsky, Grieg and Elgar. Donations at every level are welcome to keep this world-class music playing for our community, open to all with no admission charges.
