For six decades, Eastern Music Festival (EMF), a nationally recognized classical music festival and summer educational program, has been produced on the campus of Guilford College, UNCG, and other venues in Greensboro, North Carolina. EMF is distinguished by its accomplished faculty, exhilarating repertoire, and world-renowned visiting artists under the artistic direction of Gerard Schwarz. A powerful teaching institution, EMF provides encouragement and guidance to over 265 young musicians from across the country and around the globe as they take pivotal steps towards careers in the performing arts.

The 2022 season will include 60+ performances by ensembles of varying shapes and sizes at EMF’s home location in Guilford College’s Dana Auditorium, as well as other locations in Greensboro, and one performance in Boone, North Carolina at Appalachian State University.  See the festival schedule.
