The Honest Brook Music Festival was started in 1989 and has become a fixture of the classical music scene in Delaware County and the surrounding area during the past 35 years, giving concerts annually each summer except for the summer of 2020 when the concert season had to be cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The concerts are held in a converted dairy barn, and both the artists and the audience enjoy its warm, resonant acoustics. Artists have regularly commented on how wonderful it is to perform in the barn before the festival’s receptive audience.

The festival prides itself on the number of young, unknown artists it has presented at the beginning of their performing careers who have become internationally known artists. This summer’s artist lineup is evidence of that philosophy. 

For our 2024 Summer Season we start with the Uylsses Quartet on Saturday, July 13.  Next is James Baik, cello, and Albert Cano Smit, piano, on Saturday July 20.  Our two Sunday concerts in August will feature The Champlain Trio on August 4 and Nathan Lee, piano, on August 11.  All concerts now start at 4pm.  Our audience members who hear these young, unknown artists are able to say when the artists become internationally acclaimed, “We heard them first at the Honest Brook Music Festival.”

We look forward to seeing for our 2024 Summer Season.

 We will continue with no physical tickets however all seats (first come, first serve) will need to be reserved in advance.
