Castleton Festival & Le Jacquard Francais

I was recently honored to be chosen to design and decorate the Cafe for The Castleton Festival, a spectacular musical event which takes place here in Rappahannock County, Virginia, for four fabulous weeks every summer. Their first choice for the cafe tablecloths? Le Jacquard Francais "Provence" in lemon-green, which is sold through our shop, R.H. Ballard.

Now in it's third year, the Castleton Festival  brings together "top virtuoso's from the world over," and Maestro Lorin Maazel has created an extraordinary experience for both performers and audience. Situated in idyllic surroundings of Rappahannock County, Virginia, the Castleton Festival showcases young and upcoming operatic and classically trained musical talents from all parts of the globe. Stunning guest performers are also included in the mix, such as opera superstar Mezzo-Soprano Denyce Graves.

Stay tuned for more photos and festival news!
