Staunton's Baroque Journeys (Day 3)

Sunday, April 14 - 10:30 AM


Join Staunton Music Festival from April 12-14 for the third annual SpringFest!  “Baroque Journeys” offers a three-day celebration of Baroque music, spanning Europe from West to East and culminating with Handel's sublime Italian oratorio La Resurrezione. All concerts feature acclaimed period-instrument performers.  Programs include music for voices, orchestra, and chamber ensembles and feature historical keyboards.


Day 3 features three events.  At 10:30 am audiences gather at the famed Blackfriars Playhouse for a one-hour concert of English music, featuring works by Dowland, Handel, Purcell, and others. "London Playhouse" tickets are $16-$22. Half price for military or college.

Then before the SpringFest finale, interested (and hungry) listeners can enjoy a fully-catered lunch and extended lecture by Dr. Jon Gibson, music historian at JMU, talking about Handel's sublime "Resurrection" oratorio.  Event begins at 1:00 pm.  Tickets are $40 and include all food/drink plus the lecture.

Handel's Italian oratorio is the single work programmed for the Sunday afternoon finale.  Carsten Schmidt conducts vocal soloists and period-instrument performers in a complete performance of "La Resurrezione" at 4:00 pm.  Reserved seating from $22-$32.  Half price for military or college. 

All events are completely free to youth aged 18 and under.
