Jay Moss is not correct in saying that the Mostly Mozart festival was the first indoor music festival in America. It is a very nice festival but it had its precursors.

I can think of others, off the top of my head. The Newport Music Festival features classical music, indoors (sometimes outdoors, true) and dates back to 1953! The New York Philharmonic is one of the groups that has played there, along with players of the caliber of Claudio Arrau.

An even more famous example is the Tanglewood Music Festival which began way back in 1940. Many of the events were played in the Koussevitzky Music Shed named after the famous BSO conductor.

The Grant Park Festival (in various Chicago venues) dates back to 1931.

The Bowdoin College International Music Festival dates back to 1964.

The Pablo Casals Festival began in 1956 and was held first in the U. of Puerto Rico Theater. It too has had a number of distinguished artists.

I am sure there are others.
