Mission Hill releases summer concert lineup
Mission Hill presents Cowboy Junkies, Michael Bolton, Jewel and Chris Botti
The artists are larger than life, the venue is iconic and the concerts will be legendary. Mission Hill Family Estate is proud to announce the performers appearing this summer at the winery’s spectacular outdoor Amphitheatre. The performances include: Canada’s own seminal alternative band Cowboy Junkies on Friday, July 7; the triumphant return of multiple Grammy Award Winner Michael Bolton on Saturday, July 8; legendary singer-songwriter Jewel on Friday, July 28; and a special return engagement by multiple Grammy Award-winning American pop and jazz instrumentalist Chris Botti on Thursday, August 3.
With the creation of the amphitheatre, Proprietor Anthony von Mandl, a strong proponent of the arts, created a unique opportunity to enjoy live music in an unrivalled setting. Situated on a prominent hill with majestic mountains and a scenic lake creating the perfect backdrop, guests enjoy a gorgeous evening of music, wine and cuisine at one of Canada’s premiere outdoor concert venues.
“A concert performance under the open sky at our outdoor Amphitheatre is a truly unforgettable experience,” says von Mandl. “There is something extraordinarily special about this intimate hilltop location; a wonderful outdoor concert experience reminiscent of the grand performances staged at Europe’s historic open-air amphitheatres. We are thrilled to welcome these exceptional musical performers to the winery this summer.”
Tickets will go on sale to the public on Wednesday, May 3 at 10 a.m. at missionhillwinery.com or 250.762.5050. These much-anticipated concerts are once again expected to sell out quickly as these performances have become the hallmark of summer in the Okanagan Valley.
For artists who command much larger venues the small capacity Amphitheatre provides a rare treat for those eager to engage with their fans on a more intimate level. Brilliant sound, glorious music, the scents of summer, the taste of Mission Hill wines and the flavour of the food, prepared on-site by Executive Chef Bradley Froehlich and his culinary team, combine to make the evening unforgettable.
Mission Hill Family Estate is also offering several experiential packages for guests to enjoy an unforgettable evening of food, wine and song.
