28th Annual Woodstock Mozart Festival: A Classical Music Fest – July 24, July 26-27; August 2-3 and August 9-10. 

 

Every summer since 1987, countless people flock to the charming Victorian-era Woodstock Opera House on the historic Woodstock Square for the Woodstock Mozart Festival. These three weekends of extraordinary concert performances center on the work of Mozart, but also include composers such as Bach, Haydn, Beethoven, Rossini and Mendelssohn. The performances feature internationally recognized guest soloists and conductors, as well as an outstanding festival orchestra.

The opera house hosts the July 26-27, August 2-3 and August 9 performances. The opening concert (July 24) and final concert (August 10) will be held at Sanfilippo Place de la Musique, an amazing Barrington Hills residence and museum that houses the world’s largest collection of fully restored antique music machines and musical instruments (see photo below). A 90-minute tour of the museum is offered prior to each concert.
