Summer is the time for engagingly mindless action movies, escapist beach novels and grilling in backyards and on rooftops. It's also a time when classical music takes to the great outdoors.
Whether it’s opera in an Italian coliseum, orchestras in the Berkshires, or chamber music alongside the Grand Canyon, there’s a music festival for every taste and travel budget. WQXR brings you a guide to summer festivals to help feed the soul these warm weather months.
And tune into WQXR from June to August as we feature great performances tied to this summer's festival crop.
Will you be attending any festivals this summer?
