Friends of Music at Guilford, Inc.
37 Bee Barn Rd., Suite 1
Friends of Music at Guilford, Inc., founded in rural Guilford, Vermont in 1966, was incorporated in 1971 to own and maintain an 1897 "tracker-action" pipe organ in a barn. The instrument is still heard on the annual Labor Day Weekend Festival, which begins each season. From this beginning, Friends of Music became a year-round, community-based music organization, performing choral, chamber, orchestral and music theater programs, with a largely admission-free policy and an emphasis on neglected classical repertoire and works by living composers, particularly from Vermont and the greater New England region.
