Aside from being known for its food and comfortable atmosphere, the G.W. Tavern in Washington Depot features local bands, particularly of the jazz variety. If you’re a jazz fan, you’ll also want to flock to Litchfield Performing Arts, a non-profit arts organization that’s home to the annual Litchfield Jazz Festival, and the Project Poetry Live, a program that brings professional musicians and poets together with students from local schools.

If classical music is more your thing, you’ll thoroughly enjoy the offerings of Armstrong Chamber Concerts, a non-profit organization dedicated to expanding the appeal of chamber music through educational efforts and performances. And we can’t leave out the Saint John’s Concert series, which take place at the Episcopal Church in Washington, and features jazz and folk music. While none of these music venues are quite Carnegie Hall, that’s kind of the point; you can still hear some great tunes without all the hustle and bustle you’d get in the big city.
