Wintergreen Music Festival Season Finale!

Don't miss out, this week is the season finale of Wintergreen Music Festival!

This is the last week to enjoy Wintergreen Music until next summer! 

For over 25 years, Wintergreen Music has brought learning and entertainment to the mountain. The festival artists come from top orchestras, chamber music societies, and faculty rosters around the country. 

Tonight's concert is Fresh Perspectives III: Explore the Iberian Peninsula. These pieces are selected to carry you to the Iberian Peninsula, with romance, fire, and just a bit of bombast. From the lyrical Violin Sonatine by 19th century Spanish composer and mezzo-soprano Pauline Viardo Garcia, to the colorful Five Miniatures by Portuguese composer Eurico Carrapatoso, this evening culminates in the rich and dramatic Piano Quintet by Joaquín Turina.

Followed by Festive Fridays IV: The Best of Bluegrass with Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen. In honor of our tradition of presenting the best of Bluegrass, we hold an evening of toe tapping traditional tunes featuring Grammy nominated and two-time IBMA Instrumental Group of the Year, Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen. They were a standout from our 2018 Blue Ridge Mountain Music Fest, and we’re pleased to present them on our final Festive Friday of 2022. 

To complete this weekend we have two showings, Saturday and Sunday, of Mountain Top Masterworks IV: Season Finale – Tchaikovsky's 5th Symphony!  The majesty, power, heartbreak, and victory of Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony concludes the 2023 Festival. Under the direction of Carl St. Clair, this incredible finale also includes John Wineglass’s Alone Together, written during the pandemic, and Kenji Bunch’s The Devil’s Box, a classical-meets-pop-meets-fiddling viola concerto featuring Wintergreen Music’s own Steve Larson.

New this year: Enjoy MountainTop Masterworks performances two ways! Come Saturday night for an illuminative digital enhancement exclusive to the Saturday concert experience (and perfect for the evening backdrop!). On Sunday, conductors add color and perspective to your concert experience beginning with a pre-concert talk beginning at 2:00 pm.

Music in the Mountains

Wintergreen Music Festival

For over 25 years, Wintergreen Music has brought learning and entertainment to the mountain. The festival artists come from top orchestras, chamber music societies, and faculty rosters around the country. 

Expect to be wowed by their top notch musicianship, virtuoso skill, diversity of musical interest, and dedication to the Wintergreen community. This year’s festival will be held from July 6 to July 31.  There’s simply no better place to relax and recharge than surrounded by gorgeous mountain views with music that makes the scenery come alive. 

Artistic Director Erin Freeman has a few big and familiar favorites for the Wintergreen Festival Orchestra including Tchaikovsky’s epic Fifth Symphony, Mozart’s Symphony No. 40, and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 2. Movie Night returns with live music set both to cartoons and the throwback comedy, Too Much Johnson. Family friendly options abound, but especially with performances of Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals and Vivaldi’s Four Seasons (with a fresh take!). You’ll hear Carmina Burana as part of our Sing with Us! program this summer and Friday night bluegrass, jazz, and even tango music!

This is a truly unique experience and one that you won’t forget. Click here for a full schedule of events and to purchase your tickets now. Come for a day, a weekend, or the whole month.
