What to Hear in June

We are going to continue running our monthly schedule feature, Classical Month in Washington, where we include links to the reviews for all the concerts we can (our own and those in newspapers). For now, I am experimenting with the RSS Calendar, which automatically puts a weekly calendar in the sidebar. (Thanks to fellow arts blogger George Hunka for the idea.) It's not yet quite exactly how I want it, so let me know how you like it (or don't). As always, if there are concerts you would like to see included on our schedule, send your suggestions by e-mail (ionarts at gmail dot com). Happy listening!
