Marlboro Music is widely acclaimed as the world’s foremost center for leadership training in music. For seven weeks each summer, exceptional young musicians and master artists come together to form a closely-knit family on the campus of Marlboro College, in the foothills of rural southern Vermont.
"A place where mature musicians can recover their wind and deepen their art, in companionship with others...it has become a dire necessity."
– Peter Heyworth, New York Times
Stepping away from the daily demands of their profession, the artists at Marlboro have the unique opportunity to rehearse works from the vast chamber music repertoire in great depth, with ideal conditions and unlimited time. Under the guidance of Artistic Director Mitsuko Uchida, and her senior artist colleagues, the resident musicians share with one another—and then with audiences on five weekends of public performances—the joyful and inspired results of their intensive collaborations.
Marlboro Music was founded, in 1951, by Rudolf Serkin, Adolf and Herman Busch, and Marcel, Blanche and Luis Moyse. Over the past 65 years, Marlboro has had a profound influence on generations of leading chamber music artists and ensembles, recitalists, principals in the world’s major orchestras, singers, composers, artistic directors and teachers.
