Marlboro Music is known worldwide as an institution devoted to artistic excellence and to developing new leaders who illuminate all areas of music. It is where the concept of having master artists play together with exceptional young professionals was born—initiating a dynamic, collaborative approach to learning. Under the artistic direction of pianist Mitsuko Uchida, leading musicians spend up to seven weeks exchanging ideas and rehearsing in depth some 250 chamber music works each summer.
Since 1951, generations of the world’s most respected musicians have come together in the rural town of Marlboro, Vermont (population 978) to share their perspectives and learn from one another, to inspire and be inspired. Participants are drawn also by the warm, supportive family atmosphere, where musicians, staff, spouses, and children share meals, seminars, chores, social, and recreational events—creating a unique musical, human community.
