Join us for a chamber music concert at the beautiful Silverado Vineyards, with wine tasting included with the ticket price. It's the 23rd season of Music in the Vineyards, the nationally-acclaimed chamber music festival held each summer in the Napa Valley. The festival showcases world-class artists-in-residence performing new and classic chamber music repertoire in stunning winery settings with breathtaking views of the valley. This unique combination of wine country ambiance and world class talent allows artists and audiences alike to experience chamber music in an intimate setting as it was intended to be performed.
Vivaldiâs Summer from The Four Seasons anchors this program celebrating the old and the new in a continuous musical collage. We juxtapose the familiar with works by Kevin Puts, Aaron J. Kernis and Jefferson Friedmann, three stunning composers of our era.
