2021 Marlboro Music Festival

July 17-August 15, 2021


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, and on two Friday evenings. The programs are 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 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. Tickets for the 2021 Season will go on sale on March 1.

All concerts take place in Persons Auditorium (note one exception).
