“It is absolutely fantastic to be offering our first live festival in three years!”, states Music and Beyond’s Artistic Director, Julian Armour. “I am very proud of our extensive virtual content, but hearing music live in a beautiful venue is such a special experience. One overriding theme of the whole festival is celebratory and uplifting music. We want people to have a great time!”
For the first time in Music and Beyond’s history, all concerts will require individual tickets to carefully plan seating arrangements and ensure the audience is spaced out. A special “Festival Membership” ($50 for adults and $30 for students) will provide significant discounts on all tickets.
