Shandelee Music Festival offers an unparalleled musical experience, bringing world-class young artists and internationally acclaimed performers, presenting breathtaking concerts for all ages.
Sunset Concert Series
The Shandelee Music Festival is proud to celebrate its 25th Silver Anniversary Season of presenting internationally renowned classical artists from around the world in its much acclaimed Sunset Concert Series. The festival grounds are nestled on seventy-five acres of tranquil natural beauty in the Catskill Mountains of New York State. The intimate setting of the indoor, climate controlled Sunset Concert Pavilion contributes to an exhilarating environment where every seat is a great seat for quality listening and enjoyment.
P.L.A.Y. The Classics
Classical music continues as Shandelee Music Festival and Bethel Woods Center for the Arts partner presenting P.L.A.Y. The Classics (“Peace, Love, Arts, You!”). This world-class classical concert series features performances for all ages, and takes place in the magnificent Event Gallery on the grounds of the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts. Each concert is preceded by an enjoyable introduction to the music being performed, and followed by a specialty dessert reception where you will have the opportunity to relax, see friends and meet new acquaintances.
Among Shandelee Music Festival’s philosophies and goals is our aim to help talented young musicians pursue professional careers as concert artists. We believe that part of an artist’s training and growth must include developing a sense of community and sharing with others. SMF Outreach Programs take students and alumni to venues where they play for and discuss music with individuals who may not otherwise have the opportunity to experience a live classical concert.
