Logo   Marlboro Music School and Festival
The town's name brings to mind immediately the summertime Marlboro Music School and Festival, co-founded by Rudolf Serkin more than a half-century ago.



The Marlboro Music School and Festival, directed by Mitsuko Uchida and Jonathan Biss, brings together 75 of the most talented musicians in the country, some famous and some soon to be famous, for two months' practice, consultation, and tutorial.

On weekends from mid-July to mid-August the school is opened to concert audiences, most of whom have ordered their tickets weeks or months in advance and have also made early lodging reservations.

The auditorium at Marlboro College (map) seats fewer than 700 people, and to keep the spirit of the chamber music, directors and performers resist demands for a larger hall.

When you've got your tickets, make a hotel reservation either in Marlboro, or nearby Brattleboro, Wilmington, or West Dover, Newfane, or Putney.

There are more than 25 country inns, motels and hotels within a half-our drive of Marlboro College. More...
