NEWPORT, R.I., March 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The Newport Music Festival (NMF) will take place from July 4-26 and will present 27 concerts and events in the renowned Newport mansions, including The Breakers, The Elms, and the Chinese Tea House, as well as other impressive venues, such as Castle Hill Inn, The Casino Theatre, Newport Art Museum, Blithewold, Bellevue House, and St. Columba’s Chapel. Tickets are now on sale for all concerts and can be purchased at

Highlights of the 2020 Season Include:

  • A celebration of Beethoven’s 250th Anniversary – The Festival will feature a diverse array of concerts commemorating his virtuosity, including Beethoven’s Birthday Bash on July 19
  • Festival favorite and improvisational genius Charlie Albright Returns on July 11

Richard Glazier returns on July 22 in another fun-filled concert, Broadway to Hollywood, after his standing ovations at last year’s sold-out performance at Blithewold. This year, he is joined by Grammy Award-nominated pianist Mike Renzi and award-winning singer Nicholas King.

A variety of last summer’s popular concerts will be making a reappearance this season, including the Musical Garden Party, Sunrise Concerts, Broadway at the Breakers, and A Summer Evening by the Sea at Castle Hill.

This season will feature Festival favorites like pianist Daniel del Pino and baritone Trevor Neal alongside outstanding newcomer, tenor Limmie Pulliam.

NMF continues to serve the community by offering free family-friendly concerts, including a Fourth of July Extravaganza and a free concert on the Lawn at the Newport Art Museum on Tuesday, July 14.
