The Aston Magna Festival Orchestra was founded in 1972 by Lee Elman and Albert Fuller. It is dedicated to the performance of 17th and 18th century music. It performs every year in Berkshires of Massachusetts and Bard College. The Aston Magna Festival is the oldest summer festival in America devoted to music performed on period instruments.
