“To protect the health of our musical community, our audiences, and our Vermont neighbors, the Marlboro Board of Trustees has made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 summer season. While we cannot be physically together this summer, we will continue—by virtual and other means—to bring Marlboro music-making into your lives. We will get through this period together and look forward to welcoming you back to our Vermont hilltop in 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 from July 18 to August 16, 2020, and on Friday evenings, July 31 and August 14. 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 go on sale on March 2.
