Marlboro Music Festival Frog Meadow New England's Best All Male Gay Resort in Southern VermontA retreat for advanced classical training and musicianship held for seven weeks each summer in nearby Marlboro, VT. Vermont’s version of Tanglewood, only better and much closer!

Marlboro Music is known world-wide as an institution devoted to artistic excellence and to developing new leaders who illuminate all areas of music. It 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 pianist Mitsuko Uchida, leading musicians spend up to seven weeks exchanging ideas and rehearsing in depth some 250 chamber music works each summer.

Since 1951, generations of the world’s most respected musicians have come together in the rural town of Marlboro, Vermont (population 978) to share their perspectives and learn from one another, to inspire and be inspired. Participants are drawn also by the warm, supportive family atmosphere, where musicians, staff, spouses and children share meals, seminars, chores, social and recreational events—creating a unique musical and human community.

After three weeks of in-depth rehearsals, a portion of the musical collaborations are shared with audiences at weekend concerts, held from mid-July to mid-August. Audiences share in 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.

Public music performances are held each weekend, tickets required. www.marlboromusic.org
