ABOUT ASTON MAGNA

Since 1972, Aston Magna has forged an important and unique place in American cultural life. Founded by Lee Elman and the late Albert Fuller, the Aston Magna Music Festival is America’s oldest annual summer festival devoted to music performed on period instru­ments. Aston Magna’s pioneering his­­tory includes the first American perform­ances of the complete Bach Brandenburg Concer­tos and the first Mozart symphonies. To this day, performance tech­niques are ap­pro­priate to the period, national styles, culture and aesthetics of the time.The mission of the Aston Magna Foundation is to enrich the appreciation of music of the past and the understanding of the cultural, political, and social contexts in which it was composed and experienced.
