EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED Surprises Around Every Corner What have you come to expect after 20 years of the Wintergreen Summer Music Festival and Academy? Now in my second year as Artistic Director, I already have my own list: musical excellence, artistic creativity, thrilling orchestra concerts, intimate chamber performances, a welcoming community, happy patrons, exciting cooking classes, and great parties. The 2016 Festival

and Academy will provide all these – and more. With this year’s “Expect the Unexpected” theme, you’ll find surprises around every corner. From unique interpretations of Bach to a field full of bagpipers, from popup performances to a Beethoven symphony that YOU pick, we’ve planned a month packed with twists and turns that will keep you on your musical toes. Come join us for a day,

a weekend, a week, or even the entire month. You’re sure to find something to excite, inspire, and amaze you – even if you aren’t expecting it! We’re looking forward to seeing you this summer!

In addition, patrons are welcome to observe orchestra rehearsals (for Festival Season Pass holders and select donors) and Academy masterclasses (open to all), which are listed on the individual weekly pages. By August 7, you’ll have learned so much that you might just earn a master’s degree in music from the Wintergreen Summer Music Festival Patron Academy!

With our professional musicians and staff serving as teachers, coaches, and mentors, the students in our six Academy programs learn, grow, and perform throughout the month.

Celebrated chef Jacques Pepin said: “I always cook with music . . . and of course with wine. It helps. The music helps the wine. The wine helps the music.” At the Wintergreen Summer Music Festival, we don’t forget about the age-old connection of music, food, and wine. From our cooking classes with some of the best chefs in Virginia to our post-concert parties, we fully embrace the idea that music, food, spirits, and friends feed the soul and celebrate the human spirit.

All Classics Concerts take place in the Dunlop Pavilion with a pre-concert discussion 45 minutes prior to the performance.

You’ll never guess what instrument is featured in his piece! (Hint: It’s officially a reed instrument, although it looks more like a miniature, portable, and squeezable version of a certain percussion instrument that is featured in Classics III.) You’ll hear the familiar in Purcell’s Rondeau and the unexpected in Biber’s baroque masterpiece decrying the follies of war.

Classics II: What Was Haydn Hiding? Saturday, July 23 at 6:00 pm and Sunday, July 24 at 3:00 pm $40 VICTOR YAMPOLSKY, Conductor WINTERGREEN FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA ARTISTS, Soloists Martin: Concerto for seven winds Vaughan Williams: Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis Haydn: Symphony No. 104, “London” Russian Maestro Victor Yampolsky returns to Wintergreen to lead the orchestra in Haydn’s final symphony.

Artistic Director Erin Freeman will lead the orchestra through a world-premiere commission by Wintergreen’s own Gilda Lyons. Pianist Inna Faliks, who made her Chicago Symphony debut on the first movement of Clara Schumann’s Piano Concerto, will perform the entire work. And, the orchestra will perform either Beethoven’s Symphony No. 2 or No. 8. Who will choose? Well, YOU, of course!

Film Friday II: Sherlock, Jr. with Buster Keaton and LIVE music!

Friday, August 5 at 7:30 pm – $30 Bartok and Enescu are considered the two composition giants of Eastern Europe; don’t miss this concert featuring two of the most intense, festive, and exciting chamber music works ever composed!

Percussionist Justin Alexander and Friends in Recital Thursday, August 4 at 7:30 pm – $30 You might expect a percussion recital to be loud, rhythmic, and perhaps a bit clangy, but by the final week of the Festival, you’ll already know to expect the unexpected. Internationally active percussionist Justin Alexander will surprise you with a lyrical and intricate concert of Bach, Golijov, Hagen, and more.

h Con yers

Nothing beats the intimacy of a chamber music or solo performance. Humor is more vivid, virtuosity is more intense, and memories are longer lasting. For many patrons, Wesley Baldwin’s performance of all six Bach Cello Suites was the highlight of the 2012 Festival. One performer – in a barn – surrounded by eager and open ears. In this instance, the miracle of Bach was tangible. What miracles will you find this year in our offerings of unexpected chamber concerts?
