Eastern Music Festival (EMF), Greensboro’s nationally recognized classical music festival and summer educational program, is produced each summer on the campus of Guilford College, UNC-Greensboro, and other venues in the Triad. EMF is distinguished by its accomplished faculty, exhilarating repertoire, and world-renowned visiting artists. A powerful teaching institution, EMF provides encouragement and guidance to over 265 young musicians (ages 14 – 23) from across the country and around the globe as they take their first steps towards careers in the performing arts. During EMF’s five-week annual festival, the festival presents more than 65 concerts under the artistic direction of Gerard Schwarz. In addition, 30-plus outreach performances are presented throughout the region. EMF employs more than 100 musicians and support staff each season and enlivens the Greensboro and Triad cultural life and community through its performances and outreach activities. The Festival’s 60th anniversary season of summer study and performances is June 26 – July 31, 2021.
