If you have not as yet planned your summer months, do take a look at what events are being offered in your region, or, perhaps far-off “exotic” regions. Some of the workshop sign-ups are still open for registrations, or, if registrations are closed, you may be able to convince someone to audit the courses. Nevertheless, there are ample summer workshop concerts available to attend and enjoy.
