Beyond the Stage


The May Festival has a voice in every season. Stay connected with us here and see what happens beyond the stage.

"This year has not quite been a normal year, has it?!  I write to you now to thank you for your patience as we embrace the new challenges with which we are faced in order to keep our May Festival Chorus, CSO, guest artists and of course our dear audience safe during the May Festival performances. Rest assured that we have some wonderful plans to announce and that we will post updates here as soon as they are available.

From our May Festival family to yours, stay safe…. and stay tuned!"
