“A truly great performance!” That’s how our Mountain Photographer, Paul Purpura, described the closing performance of this year’s Summer Music Festival (WSMF) put on by Wintergreen Performing Arts. Paul was granted rare access to photograph the performance. A real treat for those in attendance as they closed out the WSMF with performances by The Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance from New York.
