Winona welcomes world renowned artists

The Minnesota Beethoven Festival is an annual, three-week classical music festival in Winona, presenting nationally and internationally recognized artists in performance each summer.

Since 2007, the Minnesota Beethoven Festival has celebrated the music and legacy of Ludwig van Beethoven, in an unequaled environment of performance, discovery, and community, nestled in the quaint bluffs of southeast Minnesota.

Masters like Yo-Yo Ma, the Vienna Boys Choir and the Minnesota Orchestra have all paid homage to Beethoven in this premiere festival, which transforms Winona into a classical music Mecca each summer.
