A Message from our Artistic Director

Welcome to the AMERICAN MUSIC FESTIVAL’S 2017-18 Classical Concert Series — we present beautiful music for EVERYONE!

We at the AMERICAN MUSIC FESTIVAL (AMF) seek artistic excellence in all we do and are exhilarated by your enthusiastic support. We strive to present memorable performances that will inspire you with wonder, bring you joy, whisk you away for moments of reflection and bring us together as friends.

Ideally, the arts allow us to enrich our lives with something meaningful that moves us beyond ourselves. Music has the power to connect us with a deeper part of ourselves which, in turn, may inspire us to connect with each other more compassionately and with greater understanding.

Music, as the language of the heart, reaches an area that words cannot touch. Music brings harmony to a community and a richer understanding of our own humanity.

AMF is committed to providing rich musical experiences for everyone. Whether you’re a college student, senior citizen or youngster, a seasoned listener or just beginning to enjoy classical music, from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and Barber’s Adagio to new compositions by North Carolina Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw, AMF has something magical for you.

Become a member and find out what the excitement is all about.
