“extraordinary, evocative and often riveting music”
- Stephen Brookes, Washington Post
Welcome to the sixth season of the Washington Early Music Festival.
PASSION will wind its musical way through June in Washington, as it has through centuries of music.
This intriguing theme will unleash creative forces in our artists’ programming. We can look forward to emotional performances of sacred or secular passion – love, intrigue, jealousy, death, spirituality.
As has become a tradition, the Festival will offer events throughout the entire month of June. We invite you to take expeditions into the heart of D.C. to attend our concerts, visit museums, try new restaurants, stroll the neighborhoods.
