20 Years of Musical Discovery
What began in 1997 as the American Sinfonietta Performance Academy has now grown into the six programs of the internationally recognized Wintergreen Summer Music Academy. We are celebrating this 20th anniversary with enhanced offerings, excellent faculty, and a renewed passion for excellent in performance and community service.
These are exciting developments, and we hope that young musicians will take advantage of all that Wintergreen has to offer. The programs take place at Wintergreen Resort and are mounted concurrently with the Wintergreen Summer Music Festival.
Our Academy faculty is comprised of high caliber musicians and teachers - all of whom perform in the Festival as Wintergreen Festival Artists. Students learn in masterclass, private lessons, and coachings, as well as by observing their mentors in performance.
