O.Henry Hotel is delighted to be a major sponsor and official hotel of EMF!

With over 100 music-related events during the season and throughout the year, the Eastern Music Festival has something for everyone. Whether you love classical, jazz, or bluegrass, EMF is an amazing music festival. Ask us about our EMF Package at the O.Henry Hotel, available each summer during the festival.

Founded in 1961, EMF is one of the country's top summer music festivals – bringing accomplished, world-renowned artists together with exceptionally gifted young musicians from across the U.S. and several continents to study and participate in concerts and music-related events for five weeks each summer. Many concerts are held at EMF's home, Guilford College, and some performances are held at venues in downtown Greensboro.

The Classical Program is divided into six series, with performances every night of the week during throughout the five-week festival.

A concert series where classical and Americana combine, Eastern Music Festival's Fringe series features a wide variety of musical genres. During the EMF summer festival, we present one free concert on the lawn of Guilford College as a part of the Music for Sunday Evenings in the Park series. In the off-season, Fringe stays active through participation in ArtsGreensboro's 17 Days. Past Fringe Series artists include: Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Doc Watson, Aimee Mann, Bob Margolin, Mark O'Connor and Los Straitjackets.

As more and more of the world's top performers come here to work, teach and perform, gifted music students in record numbers from across the U.S. and abroad are vying for a place among the few who will be accepted to study and spend five weeks at Eastern Music Festival. And growing audiences from across the region are loving the great music. Join Eastern Music Festival as they celebrate 51 years of education, music and life!

So why is Greensboro's Eastern Music Festival fast becoming one of the hottest places to be in this country for young musicians and professional performers?

You can see why on their faces. Everyone is smiling. The world's greatest artists -- from classical soloists like Gil Shahamto crossover fiddler Mark O’Connor to trumpeter Doc Severinsen and bands like New Riders of the Purple Sage -- are coming to EMF to work and refresh themselves. There is a vibrant energy at all performances -- many sell out so you’ll want to plan ahead -- and it is intoxicating. And America is listening - performances recorded at EMF are featured regularly on National Public Radio's popular Performance Today program, broadcast on 264 stations nationwide.

Stay at the O.Henry Hotel and discover music in a whole new way at EMF.
