July – August 2021
The Endless Mountain Music Festival Board of Directors has announced that the festival’s 15th anniversary celebration will be held next summer in 2021 rather than this summer.
“We were going to hold a big celebration for our 15th anniversary this summer but in light of the coronavirus crisis felt it necessary to put the health and safety of our musicians, staff, volunteers and audience first,” said Board President Ardell Thomas.
“Maestro Stephen Gunzenhauser and EMMF Executive Director Cynthia Long are working with the involved musicians and composers to move all of the concerts planned for this year to next year,” Thomas said. “As soon as the 2021 schedule is finalized, we will contact those who purchased tickets in advance for the 2020 festival so they can choose the concerts they want to attend between July 16 and Aug. 1, 2021.
“Then, tickets will also be made available for purchase to both the EMMF Jazz Fest concert in March of 2021 and to the 2021 summer festival, including individual shows, a flexible pass for any six concerts or a season pass to attend them all,” said Thomas.
Performing in the summer of 2021 will be a national and international selection of world-class musicians. Among them will be guest artists and the 62 members of the Festival Symphony Orchestra.
There will be a different show every evening for 16 nights during this 17-day event with performances in Knoxville, Mansfield, Tioga and Wellsboro in Tioga County, at Cherry Springs State Park outdoors under the stars in Potter County and in New York in Corning in Steuben County and Elmira in Chemung County.
Ten of the 17 will be chamber concerts offered Sundays through Thursdays with a show a night from July 18 to 22 and July 25 to 29, 2021. Two of the 10 are free. Three of the orchestra concerts will be on consecutive Friday nights in Mansfield on July 16 and 23 and 30, 2021 and three on consecutive Saturday nights in Corning, N.Y. on July 17. 24 and 31, 2021.
The 17th concert, which will be the seventh concert featuring the Festival Symphony Orchestra, will be free and held rain or shine on Sunday afternoon, Aug. 1, 2021 at 2:30 p.m. at the Wellsboro Johnston Airport, near Wellsboro.
Youth, 20 and under, are admitted FREE to all festival concerts.
