I got a fever! And sadly I’m not talking about the epic Christopher Walken skit on SNL. I’m talking about the World Cup. Though, an image of Christopher Walken playing defender for Germany would be a great image or meme to see. And sadly too, because of the time difference and life itself, I can only catch quick score updates on the FIFA app. So, yes, I’m a bad fan.
It’s time once again for the Wintergreen Summer Music Festival and Academy! The festival features symphonic and chamber concerts, workshops and clinics over a four-week period from July 8th to August 5th. It attracts first-rate musicians to participate as performers and educators, as part of the Wintergreen Summer Music Academy.

Summer has barely began (not officially, I know), and already you may think that I’m throwing in the towel when it comes to lining up some good shows. You may think I’ve grown soft and lazy when coming up with themes. Whatever you think after hearing this week’s World Music Show (6/23), know this: I’m just a tad cramped for time.
