Honest Brook Music Festival presents a stunning line-up of world-class musicians who perform concerts in a preserved barn in the idyllic setting of the western Catskills during July and August and in nearby private homes in January, February and March.
This summer we are presenting five weekend concerts instead of our usual four beginning Saturday, July 15, and concluding Sunday, August 13. Special performances include Schubert’s full song-cycle, Winterreise, and a two-concert Festival of String Quartets featuring the octets of Shostakovich and Mendelssohn.
