Special Announcement from Peter Winik, President of Wintergreen Music


The 2019 Wintergreen Music Festival was a spectacular month of music, learning, and community on the Mountain and in the Valley.

Your generosity allows us to bring world class musicians to Wintergreen and to educate the next generation of musicians at our Academy. As many of you have heard me say, ticket sales make up slightly less than 25% of our revenues. Simply put, we can't do what we do without your support.

We need to raise over $55,000 between now and the close of our fiscal year at the end of September. In order to meet that goal I am pleased to announce that the Board will match, dollar-for-dollar, gifts made in this campaign. Our matching fund is $30,000. If you haven't made a gift to us this fiscal year please support the Wintergreen Music community today. If you have previously given, we would be honored and delighted if you would consider making an additional gift to take advantage of this special match and help support our mission. We sincerely hope that everyone will be moved by the beauty and magic of this Festival to participate in this summer campaign!

Many thanks for your consideration and support.

All the best,

Peter Winik

President, Wintergreen Music
