2016 Season: Love, Lamentation & a New Venue

Our 44th Aston Magna Music Festival season, Love and Lamentation, will get under way Thursday, June 16 and will run weekends through Saturday, July 9, at four Northeast venues. Our programs details are taking shape, we are lining up our guest artists and preparing a grand offering of music from Bach to Mozart, Corelli and Handel — and more.

The Aston Magna ensemble hopes you will join us for some of the world’s most talented early music virtuosos, playing period instruments in intimate chamber settings where the sound of music is at its best.

Also this year, our Bard College performances on Fridays will move to the lovely László Z. Bitó ’60 Conservatory Building on the college campus, also the home of the Bard College Conservatory of Music.
