The  2014 Eighth Annual St. Augustine Music festival is again scheduled as a series of six free concerts over the last two weekends in June.  The concerts are free – no ticket is required. Among the internationally acclaimed guests artists returning to the concert programs this year are The Diaz Trio, pianist Eugenio Urrutia-Borlando and violinist Elissa Lee Koljonen.

In 2013, for the first time ever, the first three of the SAMF concerts were streamed live to the Internet. All six of the 2014 concerts will be streamed live. Check back here for details as they develop.
