The festival expands

After a successful launch this year, the Washington Music Festival will spill over into two weekends next summer. The 3rd weekend of July 2014 will feature various ensembles playing beautiful Baroque music and other popular music of George Washington’s day, and the 4th weekend in July will host an International Hymn Sing, featuring the Dutch organ prodigy, Gert van Hoef, on his North American debut.

All of this music will be coming at the peak of the lavender season at Washington Lavender Farm and wildflowers that bloom in fields surrounding George Washington Inn. Don’t miss this exciting time. Why not make plans to be with us? The inn isn’t as grand as the Schonbrunn … but imagine the music festival in a setting like this, surrounded by snow-capped mountains and blue ocean waters.

Nothing beautiful happens without a lot of planning and effort. Not only will it be appealing to the eyes, but something sounds charming about a baroque music festival on an oceanfront lavender farm here in “America’s Provence”! Come check it out this July when all the lavender is in full bloom!
