Location: 3 Main Street, Suite 217 Burlington VT 05401 USA

Mission: In 1974, the festival’s founders recognized an underserved niche in Vermont’s cultural landscape. Struck by the similarity of Vermont’s beauty to that of Mozart’s Austria, they were inspired to create a music festival in the European model: a series of interrelated classical events in a variety of gorgeous settings.Since its first season, the Vermont Mozart Festival has been dedicated to enriching people’s lives through beautiful music in special Vermont places. The festival hosts approximately 20 concerts in more than ten scenic and historic locations each year.

Never disappointing! The performances by the Vermont Mozart Festival are always excellent. My favorite venue is the south porch at Shelburne Farms, but the Trapp Family meadow also makes a spectacular location. Everything is beautifully run too.

I began attending the Vermont Mozart Festival when I was a child and was mesmerized by the entire experience back then. It built a foundation of musical appreciation that has lasted throughout my life. I have traveled a lot of the world and there is still nothing so special as attending a concert at Shelburne Farms, listening to world class musicians while watching the sun set over Lake Champlain. I took my father to opening night last summer and you could see how the music transported him to almost a magical place. It was a wonderful evening, surrounded by friends and the sounds of the Mozart. A truly great evening.

through music/concerts

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

friendly, knowledgeable and they seemed to truly be enjoying themselves

My wife and I had the privilege of attending two concerts last year... each was special, both for the consistency of great performances and for the unique atmosphere of each venue. I only wish more people could come to Vermont to enjoy this uplifting experience.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

play in heaven!

The Vermont Mozart Festival is a tremendous asset to the Vermont community. Attending one of their concerts is an amazing opportunity to hear world class musicians playing world class music...while sitting on a picnic blanket, drinking a glass of wine. Add to this a celebration of the historic and scenic venues of Vermont, and you can truly say there is really no other musical experience like this. The festival is the highlight of my summer, and preparing a picnic feast to attend the Grand Opening with a group of friends has become an annual event.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

hearing how much others have enjoyed their concerts.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

expanding my own musical horizons.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated and hard working, and excited about sharing classical music with others.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

ensure that many more people in the community could learn about, appreciate and experience classical music in a non-traditional setting.
