About the Festival

The SAMF was founded in 2007 by Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra members Jorge A. Peña (viola) and Jin Kim-Peña (cello), with the invaluable participation and support of many other musicians and the local community.

Conceived as a free classical music concert series to celebrate the rich artistic and cultural traditions of St. Augustine, the annual festival has quickly become a highlight of the summer season. The concerts are presented free of charge – no ticket required.

Thanks to the gracious support of local businesses, the arts community, the City of St. Augustine, volunteers and attendees, it’s a pleasure to announce the festival will return in 2014 for its eighth season at the historic Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine.

In order to keep the festival free to the public, we encourage you to get involved with the festival as a donor, sponsor or volunteer, and take this opportunity to give back to the community and visitors to St. Augustine while enjoying some remarkable music.
