Classical Week in Washington (8/14)

Classical Week in Washington is a weekly feature that appears on Sundays. If there are concerts that you would like to see included on our schedule, send your suggestions by e-mail (note the spiffy new address: ionarts at gmail dot com). Plan your concert schedule for the entire month of August with our Classical Month in Washington (August), or your summer opera listening with Opera in the Summer 2005.
