The St. Augustine Music Festival is excited to continue its “Sundays with SAMF” free concert series with two amazing afternoon concerts in downtown St. Augustine. The first in collaboration with the St. Augustine Art Association at its center and the second rescheduled concert in collaboration with the Women’s Exchange of St. Augustine at the historic Pena-Peck house. The second concert was originally planned for March in honor of Black History and Women’s History months and features beautiful music from African-American and women composers.
“Both concerts underscore SAMF’s commitment to bringing world-class music to diverse audiences in the St. Augustine region,” said Jorge Peña, Artistic Director of the St. Augustine Music Festival. He continued, “As we celebrate of 15th anniversary we are very pleased to have a diverse line-up of musicians and composers and welcome everyone to these free concerts.”
