The first-ever Hunt Country Music Festival will be held May 20-22 in Middleburg and Upperville, Virginia.
Produced by The Middleburg Concert Series, the festival will kick off with an exhilarating tango concert by QuinTango. Following a boxed supper and cocktail hour, fanfare trumpets will direct concert goers to the sanctuary of Upperville’s Trinity Episcopal Church for a program of concertos for organ, harp and trumpets. A chamber orchestra from the Loudoun Symphony Orchestra will support the soloists.
Saturday’s performances in Middleburg will offer spirituals and operatic arias plus an evening concert by the famed Washington Saxophone Quartet, led by Rich Kleinfeldt, known by many as the voice of WETA radio. A “High Tea with Brahms” afternoon concert will feature pianists and singers performing before an audience enjoying tea and scones.
Sunday’s schedule begins with a recital by the Illinois Arts Duo on piano and violin. The festival will conclude with a concert of 1940s big band standards performed by a 16-piece swing band. Festival attendees will also enjoy free street entertainment by strolling musicians, town criers and walking tours that will highlight historic hunt country lore.
Festival Tickets can be purchased online at https://huntcountrymusicfestival.org and on-site on the day of the performance.
