Prague, already famous for its rich musical history, has now become the venue for what may be an annual event.

The Prague Baroque Festival starts June 17 and will continue through October 3, 2011. The venue will be the 17th-century Ledebour Garden, on the beautiful hill below Prague Castle. It will be an open-air festival, and rain or shine, the performances will take place as scheduled (with a covered area provided in case of rain). Most of the performances will be held at 8:00 p.m.
