Every summer in Vermont, musicians come together to find the quiet, space and time to explore the meaning and magic of chamber music. Since 1951, the Marlboro Music Festival has been summer home to classical luminaries such as Rudolf Serkin, Pablo Casals, Richard Goode, Aaron Copland, Samuel Barber, Murray Perahia, Jaime Laredo, and Mitsuko Uchida (its current Artistic Director), to name a few. And for 50 years, the Musicians from Marlboro touring program has been taking that summertime magic on the road, bringing the spirit of its Vermont home to audiences across the country.
