Collage has been a tradition at WWCMF for nine seasons now. Celebrate the tenth with us at the brand new and utterly spectacular Valdemar Estates. You can choose between the Monday and Tuesday performances, or even elect to come both nights (that would make you a Superfan!).
What is Collage, you ask?
Collage is a style of performing in which the entire space becomes a stage. The audience is co-fermented with the performers (we are in a winery production room after all) to create an entirely unique and of the moment blend. The music unfolds in front of, above, behind and within the audience in surprising ways. Music from across centuries dovetails into a continuous fabric of sound and movement. You might encounter Hendrix and Handel, Bach and Beck, Mozart and Megadeath. The pairings and contrasts are endless (and not necessarily alliterative).
One thing you’ll certainly experience is the exquisite hospitality of Valdemar Estates paired with the extraordinary virtuosity of musicians of WWCMF. Both shows sell out early, and you are thus forewarned. Get ‘em while they’re hot!
Note: Due to the continuous format of the musical sets and intricate lighting and staging design, late seating will not be possible. If you arrive after the beginning of the half, you will have to wait until intermission to take your seat. Unfortunately, we cannot make any exceptions. Thank you for understanding.
