2nd Annual Washington Music Festival has begun!

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!
