Marlboro Music Festival
August 6 at 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Described by The New Yorker as “the classical world’s most coveted retreat,” Marlboro Music has, for seven decades, attracted the world’s most distinguished concert artists and most promising emerging instrumentalists and singers to its idyllic Southern Vermont campus.
Known worldwide as an institution devoted to artistic excellence and to developing new leaders who illuminate all areas of music, Marlboro is where the concept of having master artists play together with exceptional young professionals was born—initiating a dynamic, collaborative approach to learning. Under the artistic direction of pianists Mitsuko Uchida and Jonathan Biss, the artists form more than 60 chamber music ensembles each week, working together intensively from late June until mid August.
Five weekends of public performances emanate from this program. While the concerts feature only about a quarter of the hundreds of ensembles that rehearse each summer, they represent the exceptionally high standards and spirit of collegiality and artistic discovery that characterize all of the groups. Concert programs are selected from those groups that have worked to especially satisfying results. For this reason, specific programs and artists are determined and announced only about one week in advance of each concert. Audiences enjoy a spirit of discovery, experiencing exciting young musicians and hearing insightful interpretations of chamber music masterworks and unfamiliar pieces played with great passion and joy.
Concerts take place on Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons from July 15 through August 13, 2023 in Persons Auditorium on the Potash Hill campus in Marlboro, Vermont. There will be two additional evening performances on Friday, August 4 and Friday, August 11. Tickets are on sale now and may be ordered online at marlboromusic.org or by contacting our Box Office Manager, Patrick LaVecchia-Burke, at 215-569-4690 or [email protected]. Seating is reserved, with tickets ranging from $20-40.
