It was a great day for a Baroque concert on the front lawn of George Washington Inn! With so much happening on the farm, the music was heavenly as the orchestra’s beautiful sounds reached throughout the grounds. Bach, Handel and Corelli would have been proud. Maestro Dewey Ehling and many musicians from the Port Townsend Community Orchestra came out to make it all come together in perfect harmony!
Maestro Dewey Ehling has some great ideas for this summer’s inaugural Washington Music Festival. Here is a list of some composers and their works that could be performed in this exciting new venue by members of the various musical groups with which Mr. Ehling collaborates. Bach and Handel were contemporaries of George Washington. Why not bring these three men together again?
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)
George Frideric Handel (1685-1759)
Henry Purcell (1659-1695)
Arcangelo Corelli (1653-1713)
Stephen Foster (1826-1864)
