2017 Marlboro Music Festival

July 15-August 13, on the campus of Marlboro College in Marlboro, VT

After three weeks of daily rehearsals, Marlboro artists begin sharing the results of their in-depth collaborations with audiences. Public concerts are presented on Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons from July 15 to August 13, 2017, and on Friday evenings, July 28 and August 11. The programs will be selected from the 60-80 groups in rehearsal at any one time; only one quarter of the more than 250 works explored during the summer can be included.

Each week, groups who feel that they have achieved especially successful results will recommend their works for performance. As a result of this dynamic scheduling process, we do not know concert repertoire or personnel more than a week in advance. Yet, the performances provide exciting musical discoveries and represent the joyous spirit and dedication to excellence of the entire Marlboro Music community. The concerts can sell out quickly, so we urge you to reserve your seats as early as possible.
