For five weeks in July and August, Stratford Summer Music brings musicians—from string quartets to Mexican mariachi bands—to indoor and outdoor venues around town. Outdoor performances, like those sounding from a barge on the Avon River, are free. Series may include Saturday-night cabaret at the Church restaurant and classical-music lunches at Rundles. Some performances do sell out, so get tickets in advance.
