Only the pocket calculator has saved me from financial ruin.

With the upcoming summer music festival season almost upon us, music lovers in droves will soon flock to the Berkshires and southern Vermont to immerse themselves in classical music.

Call it a reward for enduring a long, though relatively mild winter, or a yearly renewal of the soul via the musical preachments of the great masters.
