Music Carolina SummerFest 2020 is set to begin August 9 and run through August 23. At this time, we are planning to proceed with SummerFest as usual. We are monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic closely and anticipate updating you on the status of the festival by June 1. In the meantime, we are holding off on putting festival tickets on sale, or announcing the rescheduled date for the Brubeck “Take Five” concert.

Assuming the festival goes ahead as planned, we have put together a series of exciting and varied programs, performed in unique and intimate venues. As part of the citywide collaboration “BTHVN Rocks WS,” this year's SummerFest will have a Beethoven theme to celebrate the composer's 250th birthday. Programs will include performances by Jazz Classique, violinist Jacqui Carrasco with pianist Peter Kairoff, pianist Dmitri Vorobiev, Christina Soriano’s intergenerational dance project, as well as Piedmont Opera.

Stay safe, and we hope to see you in August!
