Summer Music Festival
One of the things that makes Wintergreen such a unique, wonderful place to vacation is its spectacular diversity. In addition to the better-known amenities, Wintergreen offers world-class fine arts. This year, the Wintergreen Performing Arts Society 2015 Wintergreen Summer Music Festival runs from July 6 through August 2, 2015.

The theme for the 2015 season is: Cheers! Toast 20 Years of Music in the Mountains. Celebrate their 20th Anniversary with them, recognizing the anniversaries of musical artists and events spanning both time and types of music. Beethoven, the Beatles, Mozart, and Frank Sinatra are but a few. Join us and attend a wide range of events, including concerts, lectures, rehearsals, master classes, and even cooking classes.

A Special Opportunity
We at Wintergreen Real Estate are proud to be a long-term sponsor of the Summer Music Festival. We would like to invite you to attend the festival. In addition, however, we ask those who have homes in the area to consider hosting one or more musicians during the festival.
“For the past 20 years musicians have been housed in homes and condominiums generously donated by WTG property owners. Many of our host families have provided housing for several years. This certainly speaks to the positive experience that this opportunity has to offer and the lasting connections that develop,” says Kelly Berrang, Housing Coordinator for Wintergreen Performing Arts.
“We are specifically looking for fully-furnished homes or condominiums with one to two bedrooms, a bathroom and perhaps a little refrigerator space. We are also in particular need of three or four larger homes (3-4 bedrooms) to house our Fellowship Quartet, invoke, and some of our older Academy students. For seasonal homeowners, even if you can’t be there, someone can tend to your empty home. Many homeowners provide housing for musicians for the duration of the Festival, while others may only host for one to two weeks, or even just a weekend.”
Do you have an extra bedroom and bathroom to share, or an empty house or condo available for the month of July? Please help. Consider providing housing for a musician for the month, one or two weeks, or even just a weekend. And, in addition to the unique opportunity to interact with these talented professionals, each host or host family will receive 2 free tickets to a Festival concert and an invitation to a picnic celebration for hosts and musicians during the Festival, and possibly, a tax benefit. Wintergreen Performing Arts will provide house cleaning prior to the arrival or following the departure of the musicians.
