This is what makes the Wintergreen Music Festival an experience you’ll never forget. Professional musicians and artists join forces with aspiring student musicians and faculty every July through August.

Set among the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains, you’ll hear classical, jazz, pop, and Broadway, plus there are cooking classes, seminars, and concerts at neighborhood wineries, cideries, and breweries. Wintergreen Music (formerly known as Wintergreen Performing Arts) produces high-quality symphonic and chamber concerts in addition to music education and outreach programs to infuse the Blue Ridge Mountains and beyond with music year-round. 


Wintergreen Music inspires, educates, and welcomes audiences, students, and professional musicians alike through the transformative power of music.
