Live music will be part of the mix during Winterfest 2010 Saturday, Feb. 20 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Cellardoor Winery, 367 Youngtown Road. The family-friendly day will feature fun outdoor activities including sledding, snowshoeing, snow-person making, ice skating and horse-drawn wagon rides. Participants also may enjoy food and wine pairings, hot cocoa and savory treats plus a gourmet brunch by Natalie’s chef Lawrence Klang. A highlight of the day for those 21 and older will be the unusual opportunity to sample wine directly from the barrel.

From 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., seven members from the Chris Humphrey Big Band will keep things swinging. The New Hampshire-based band focuses on classic big band jazz featuring tunes from the 1930s through the 1960s. Stylistically, it tries to emulate the Count Basie Orchestra, but also plays tunes made famous by Duke Ellington, Woody Herman, Stan Kenton, Buddy Rich and Glenn Miller.

From 2 to 4 p.m., the local Starboard Watch quartet from the Windjammer Barbershop Chorus will offer close harmony favorites with that distinctive barbershop “ring.”

Admission to Winterfest 2010 is free; attendees are asked to bring a non-perishable food item or gently worn clothing, which will be donated to local organizations supporting neighbors in need.
