  • The St. Augustine Music Festival is the largest free classical music festival in the U.S. The festival normally presents two full weekends of concerts featuring musicians from the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra joined by internationally renowned artists performing live at the Cathedral Basilica. The festival's aim is to offer St. Augustine visitors and locals an opportunity to appreciate classical music with a wide variety of selections.

    On Saturday, June 19, 2021, in celebration of Juneteenth, the Ritz Chamber Players (RCP) and The St. Augustine Music Festival Chamber Orchestra will combine talents to perform "Let Freedom Sing." The united, multi-community musical group will perform an inspiring selection of Negro Spirituals and classical works, all rejoicing in the triumphs of the civil rights movement.

    The Festival Choir will be directed by renowned choral conductors Dr. Herbert Vincent-Ricardo, Pea’dro Jones and Deborah McDuffie. Audiences will delight in this musical celebration of Songs of Freedom spanning the African Diaspora and beyond.

    The St. Augustine Music Festival was founded in 2007 by Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra members Jorge A. Peña (viola) and Jin Kim-Peña (cello), with the invaluable participation and support of many other musicians and the local community.
