What began as a small venture in the arts with ticket prices just under $5, the Robert Mondavi Winery Summer Concert Series is now one of the wine country’s most popular and widely attended concert events, hosting more than than 100 performers from the worlds of R&B, jazz and pop artists alike.
Now in its 46th year, the Robert Mondavi Winery Summer Concert Series has evolved into a wine, food and music event that is a highlight of summer in the Napa Valley. Major headliners in store this year include Grammy Award-winning artists Lyle Lovett and Melissa Etheridge, along with The Wallflowers and American Idol winner Phillip Phillips. The complete 2015 Summer Concert Schedule looks like this:
– July 4. The Wallflowers & Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness
– July 11. Phillip Phillips
– July 18. Lyle Lovett
– July 25. Melissa Etheridge
– August 1. Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue
The first performance in the Summer Concert Series opens with a bang on the Fourth of July with the return of Robert Mondavi Winery’s spectacular fireworks show and concert. In addition to the musical performances, food will be provided this year by Off The Grid, Vintage Sweet Shoppe and Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream.
Proceeds from ticket sales will directly benefit Napa Valley music programs. Over the last 46 years, more than $2 million has been raised to support a number of Napa Valley-based charitable organizations as a result of the Robert Mondavi Winery Summer Concert Series.
