  • Wintergreen Performing Arts Summer Music Festival

    by Casey | Posted on July 5th, 2012

    Innovation 2012 is the theme of this year’s Wintergreen Performing Arts Summer Music Festival, set to kick off Friday, July 6 and run through Sunday, August 5. The focus of innovation will include innovators – both familiar and unfamiliar – who have moved us in new directions in dance, music, theatre, film, food, wine and the visual arts.

    From a musical standpoint, attendees to these events can expect to hear the works of Ludwig van Beethoven  as well as brand new pieces written by student composers in settings that vary from the Evans Center at Wintergreen Resort to the Big Red Barn at Rodes Farm in Nellysford. From classical and intimate to new and center stage, there’s a setting and a performance for everyone.
