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.

This series is available free of charge to all affiliate stations for two broadcasts through January 31, 2017

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.

In honor of this milestone anniversary, WQXR and Marlboro have partnered to create a four-part series that features music from the festival, reminiscences from tour alumni and audio postcards from Vermont. Each show can be a standalone or used in series. The program is hosted by Marlboro alum Anthony McGill, principal clarinetist of the New York Philharmonic and WQXR’s artist-in-residence. Each episode includes more than 50 minutes of music per hour.

Featured artists include Mitsuko Uchida, Richard Goode, Rudolf Serkin, Jonathan Biss, and Jaime Laredo, among many others.
