2020/21 Folger Consort subscriptions are on sale now.
Folger Consort's 2020/21 season takes its inspiration from five great European rivers. Throughout history, rivers have been a source of life, culture, and commerce, allowing different people to mix and inspiring art, music, and ideas. Join us for five concerts brimming with treasures of early music from the cities, castles, and cathedrals that dot the banks of Europe's most ancient and influential rivers.
The 2020/21 Folger Consort season will have performances at St. Mark's Church on Capitol Hill–a block from the Folger–and at Washington National Cathedral. Please continue to check back in on this page and the Folger website as details about the 2020/21 season programs and guest artists are announced. Performances will take place on the following dates; please note that dates, times, and locations are subjected to change:
