Artistic Director Jorge A. Pena announced the 2008 St. Augustine Music Festival and the launch of their website at http://staugustinemusicfestival.org for the second year of this popular event.
Opening Sunday, June 22nd and continuing through the summer, the festival is a celebration of classical music featuring concerts that are free to the public and performed at the historic Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine.
Pena said, â€œLast yearâ€™s Festival was brought to you by the generosity of the musicians involved. While we gratefully accepted contributions, they were not sufficient to cover all the expenses.â€ He added, â€œI hope the community members will become involved and support the Festival in whatever way they are ableâ€.
The website contains a program of scheduled performances, biographical information on the musicians, photographs from last yearâ€™s festival, music clips and additional information about this yearâ€™s event.
