Honest Brook Music Festival

Founded in 1989 by Michael Cannon and Christopher Desler, the Honest Brook Music Festival is committed to presenting outstanding young musicians and well-known artists to the residents of Delaware and the surrounding counties in upstate New York.

The Festival has grown over the years to enjoy a prominent place in the cultural life of the area during the summer and winter months. 2015 marks the Festival's 20th Winter Concert Series and its 27th Summer Concert Series.


The Festival's Summer Series is held in a preserved dairy barn in an idyllic rural setting in the Western Catskills. Its Winter Season is held in private homes re-creating the setting in which much of the classical repertoire was originally performed.
