Marlboro Music, founded in 1951, is widely considered to be the world’s leading center for the in-depth exploration of chamber music by outstanding professional musicians. For seven weeks each summer in the rural community of Marlboro in southern Vermont, some 80 musicians of diverse ages and backgrounds live together with staff members, spouses and children—forming one large and nurturing musical family. The musicians exchange insights and experiences in intensive daily rehearsals; after three weeks of rehearsal, they share the inspired results of their collaborations in five weekends of public performances.

The program takes place on the leased 400-acre campus of Marlboro College. Musicians and staff members are housed in dormitory rooms and eat together in the campus dining hall. Summer positions include a weekly stipend plus a room on campus and all meals—and the food is excellent! Staff members work six days a week, yet usually can enjoy much of the music, the social events and the unique community. Since not all jobs may be available when we receive your application, please let us know all position(s) you would like to be considered for in order of your preference.
