Strike Up The Band

Common musical notes

     One of the most relaxing things that I can think of doing is to take my chair to an outdoor concert and spend the evening sipping wine with my wife and friends.  The festive atmosphere created by a musical performance is being used by wineries to attract new customers to their facilities.  These concerts range from nationally known acts to local solo artists and they cover just about every known genre of music imaginable. 

     The Seattle, Washington area is extremely fortunate to have the Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery within easy access because this winery presents an outstanding calendar of events each summer.  Chateau Ste. Michelle has been hosting live performances since 1984 in an intimate amphitheater setting that has made the Chateau Ste. Michelle Summer Concert Series one of the Pacific Northwest great music venues.  Go to www.Ste-Michelle.com for more information.

     Traveling east to the Finger Lakes Region of New York you can find music at numerous wineries located around these beautiful glacial lakes.  Winestock is a wine, food and music festival that will be celebrated on Saturday, June 16th at Three Brothers Winery on Seneca Lake.  If you would like to make plans to attend please go to www.winestock2012.eventbrite.com/ for more detailed information.

     Let’s turn south to Western Pennsylvania and the Stone Villa Winery in Acme where you can enjoy a show and a glass of wine next to a picturesque lake on the grounds of the winery.  A complete calendar of events and contact information is available at www.StoneVilla.com.

     Our final stop will be Greensburg, Pennsylvania where the Summer Sounds Concerts will be held 7:00 every Friday evening from June 1st through August 31st.  These free shows are presented at the Robertshaw Pavillion in St. Clair Park thanks to the support of volunteers along with corporate sponsorship and donations from concert goers.  Additional information and schedules can be found at www.SummerSounds.com.  I sincerely urge you to attend these events and support the businesses and organizations that promote them in your area.
