The 2016 Wintergreen Summer Music Festival

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 pop-up 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!

Erin Freeman, Artistic Director
