News Friday Marlboro Music Festival Concert Benefits Town Organizations

Three concerts on next-to-last weekend offer 35 resident artists in diverse works for piano, strings, woodwinds and voice on Friday, August 3, 8:30 PM; Saturday, August 4, 8:30 PM; and Sunday, August 5, 2:30 PM

Marlboro, VT - In a longstanding tradition, Marlboro artists express thanks to the community where their program has been held each summer since 1951, by performing a concert with all proceeds going to local town organizations.

This year’s Town Benefit Concert – held in the intimate former barn that serves as the Marlboro College Dining Hall – takes place on Friday, August 3 at 8:30 PM. Tickets are $30, and $20 for stage seats. The program includes a delightful string quintet by Boccherini; a cantata by Stravinsky for soprano, tenor, 2 flutes, oboe and cello; and the String Sextet in F, Op. 118 by Max Reger – a Brahmsian composer who was a special favorite of two of Marlboro’s founders, Adolf Busch and Rudolf Serkin.

Marlboro’s fourth and next-to-last weekend includes some 35 of the 75 international artists who are spending seven weeks exploring chamber music in the kind of depth possible only at Marlboro. In addition to Friday’s Benefit Concert, concerts in the Persons Auditorium on Saturday, August 4 at 8:30 PM and Sunday, August 5 at 2:30 PM present beautiful and rarely-heard vocal chamber music – Schumann Duets for soprano, tenor and piano and his Spanische Liebeslieder for four voices and piano four-hands with Co-Artistic Director Richard Goode among the performing artists. There will also be works for flute, piano and strings by Mozart, Kodaly, Beethoven, Brahms and Mendelssohn.

Tickets priced from $5 (canopy area seating) to inside seats at $15-$35 are available at 802-254-2394 or Weekend concerts continue through August 12 with a special concert on Friday, August 10. Only canopy area seats remain for the August 12 concert.

Visitors may attend free rehearsals in the Auditorium with schedules available at 802-254-2394 starting Monday each week; families may obtain a free ticket for children 8-19 for each adult ticket purchased for the Friday, August 10 performance.
