The Marlboro Music School and Festival brings together the world’s most acclaimed artists and exceptional young talent in the foothills of rural, southern Vermont, for seven weeks of relaxed, inspired and joyful music-making. Concerts of the Marlboro Festival can be enjoyed over five weekends, between mid-July and mid-August.  This year’s festival will be held from July 15 to August 13, on the campus of Marlboro College (a separate institution).  More information about Marlboro Music may be found at marlboromusic.org. 

 The Classical Network has been granted privileged access to the Marlboro archives, which contain many, many performances never before heard beyond the confines of the festival, all of them featuring chamber music luminaries and stars of tomorrow.

Future weeks will bring performances by Marlboro legends Rudolf Serkin, Marcel Moyse, Alexander Schneider and Pablo Casals, along with fascinating glimpses of rising stars and top musicians of tomorrow.
