It was deeply rewarding for me to refine my violin technique working with a faculty of accomplished, professional musicians. Everyone was friendly and welcoming; the food was great. I highly recommend the Wintergreen experience.

The Wintergreen Summer Music Academy has grown into a nationally recognized program over the years. In 2015, new programs have been added and existing programs have been re-defined.

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 in conjunction with the Wintergreen Summer Music Festival.
