Summer Festivals in and around Washington

To accompany our summer arts preview, here’s a list of classical music festivals in Washington, DC and the general area (within a 3- or 4-hour drive of the city).

In Sunday’s paper, I write a more general introduction to the region’s summertime music.

I also take (another) look at the Castleton Festival, Lorin Maazel’s home-grown enterprise, which this year is showing signs of the financial challenge of mounting a festival, and the difficulty of running one without much experience, in a much-reduced program.

Anne Midgette came to the Washington Post in 2008, when she consolidated her various cultural interests under the single title of chief classical music critic. She blogs at The Classical Beat.
