Since 1951, talented musicians from all over the world have come together in the small town of Marlboro, Vt. to learn from and inspire each other. Under the direction of celebrated pianists Richard Goode and Mitsuko Uchida, Marlboro is one of the only places leading artists can spend up to seven weeks rehearsing nearly 240 works together.
Following their time together in Marlboro, the artists perform in various combinations across the country. Concerts are held each year in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Greenwich, Conn., and Washington DC. Other shows are given in Los Angeles, Chicago, Iowa City, Rochester, Buffalo, and Brattleboro, Vt.
