Description
Marlboro was settled in 1763 by two families who separately endured the hardships of pioneer life for more than a year before discovering they were neighbors. Today the town is the site of Marlboro College, with an undergraduate enrollment of 300, and a summer music school and festival founded by pianist Rudolf Serkin.
On weekends from mid-July through mid-August, more than 80 groups of artists perform during the Marlboro Music Festival , which presents chamber music from all musical periods. This coveted classical music retreat features daily rehearsals for 3 weeks. Thereafter, master artists and extraordinary young musicians select a weekly set of successful works to perform at public concerts. Reservations are suggested; phone (215) 569-4690.
