Wintergreen Performing Arts’ Summer Music Festival is in full swing for days to come! This past weekend the above woodwind ensemble played at Java Depot in Roseland/Beech Grove as part of their Music In Unusual Places.

Our Paul Purpura, tells us:

“They played Ravel’s “Le tombeau de Couperin” at the Java Depot yesterday. Of course one of  Ravel’s most popular works is “Bolero”, which was used in the movie “10”. But  “Le tombeau de Couperin” was written as a memorial. Each movement is dedicated to a friend of Ravel who died during World War I, with the final movement dedicated to the deceased husband of Ravel’s favorite pianist Marguerite Long, according to Wiki.”

Another performance is scheduled this coming Saturday @ Java Depot and on the the patio of Devils Grill Restaurant at Wintergreen Resort.

Over 300 total events make up this year’s Summer Music Festival. To see a list of dates and times head on over to WPA: http://www.wintergreenperformingarts.org/index.php?pageId=171
