The 12th Annual Endless Mountain Music Festival is not like any other.
At 7:30 p.m. for 16 nights, from the opening show on Friday, July 21 until the closing concert on August 5, high-energy music for every taste will be provided by world-class musicians with performances in Knoxville, Mansfield, Tioga and Wellsboro in Tioga County, at Cherry Springs State Park outdoors under the stars in Potter County and in New York in Corning in Steuben County and Elmira in Chemung County.

Ten concerts will be offered Thursday through Sunday with a show every night from July 23-27 and July 30-Aug. 3. Two of the 10 are free.

Among the guest performers are the award-winning Celtic band Across the Pond; the Max Buckholtz Ensemble playing gypsy and klezmer melodies from Eastern Europe; the Trifilio Tango Trio; classical and jazz pianist Terry Klinefelter of Harrisburg; and jazz pianist Bram Wijnands from Kansas City, Missouri via the Netherlands.

There will be six Endless Mountain Music Festival Symphony Orchestra Concerts. On three consecutive Fridays, July 21, July 28 and August 4, orchestra concerts will be at Steadman Theater on the Mansfield University campus in Mansfield, Pa. and on three consecutive Saturdays, July 22, July 29 and August 5, in the Corning Museum of Glass Auditorium in Corning, New York. Each will be different.

At the July 21 concert, MU Choral Activities Director Peggy Dettwiler will conduct the Mansfield University Concert Choir, Festival Chorus and Choral Academy and the Festival Symphony Orchestra. The choirs will sing "Oh, Shenandoah" and other selections. Maestro Stephen Gunzenhauser will then conduct the 62-member orchestra as they perform classical works, ending with Tchaikovsky's "Violin Concerto in D Major" featuring violin soloist Diana Seitz.

The "Wild West" orchestra concert on July 28 at Mansfield University is an event for all ages. Children and adults will see video footage from famous westerns projected on two big movie screens in Steadman Theater as they listen to the orchestra perform music from “The Cowboys,” “High Noon,” “The Magnificent Seven,” “How the West was Won,” ”Dances with Wolves” and others. Youngsters will also receive a cowboy hat or a sheriff's badge as a free gift. Children will be admitted free. Adults accompanied by children will be admitted for half price.

On Aug. 4, the orchestra will present “Moncayo’s “Huapango,” Márquez’s “Conga del Fuega Nuevo” and Shostakovich’s “Symphony No. 5 in D Minor, Op. 47” at Mansfield University.

At the Corning Museum of Glass, the Saturday, July 22 concert will feature the Festival Symphony Orchestra performing “Symphonic Poem, Op. 108” from Dvořák’s “Polednice (The Noon Witch),” Ginastera’s “Dances from Estancia Ballet, Op 8,” Williams’ “English Folk Song Suite” and Rachmaninov’s “Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, Op. 43” with Israeli pianist Yevgeny Yontov.

On July 29 in Corning, the Festival Symphony Orchestra and soloist Argentinian Emmanuel Trifilio on bandoneón will present Piazzolla’s “Bandoneón Concerto." The concert will end with Beethoven’s “Triple Concerto in C Major, Op. 56" featuring soloists Gita Ladd on cello, Asiya Korepanova at the piano and Sally McLain on violin.

Bringing the season to an end will be the last concert in Corning on Aug. 5. Chinese pianist Xixi Zhou will play Mozart’s “Piano Concerto No. 21 (Elvira Madigan)” with the Festival Symphony Orchestra. The show will close with Tchaikovsky’s “Suite No. 3 in G Major, Op. 55.”
