A Wintergreen Welcome — Erin Freeman, Artistic Director Imagine: You are on top of Wintergreen Mountain. The sun is setting over the ridge, the deer are grazing in the distance, and you’ve just ordered a cold drink. You take your seat among friends new and old, a breeze whisks by, and the music begins. The worries of the day pass as you immerse yourself in the unique combination of Destination, Community, and Artistry that is the Wintergreen Summer Music Festival and Academy. Your soul is uplifted and forever changed as you experience the humanity, the expression, and the athleticism of our nationally ranked artists. If you’re new to the Wintergreen Summer Music Festival and Academy, welcome!

You’ll find much to delight your senses. Take a look at our various series, our special offerings, and our opportunities for musical enrichment. Or, pick a weekend experience that suits your schedule and musical tastes. With more than 150 events, we have something for everyone! If you’re a returning patron, welcome back! You’ll recognize some of your favorites – several cloaked in new names that better describe the experience. Classics are now MountainTop Masterworks. Our Coffee & Kids concerts are still Sunday morning, but are now all accompanied by familyfriendly activities. And, our Tuesday/ Thursday evenings are now earlier and

shorter to allow time for a refreshing drink and conversation and a postconcert dinner – we’re calling these Mix, Mingle & Music. This year, our theme is “Fountain of Youth.” We celebrate our 20th year of teaching students by diving into the music of child prodigies Mozart, Mendelssohn, and Rota; by celebrating the young at heart with the artistry of Charlie Chaplin and Christopher O’Riley; and by remembering our own childhood with our favorite folk, pop, and jazz music from decades past.
