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.

I've experienced the VT Mozart Festival as a 'concert-goer'--with my 2 daughters--for many years. We have loved all of our experiences with this organization; enough so that I now volunteer to support and enjoy being 'a part' of this great organization. This shows the organizers and performers--as well as the audience-- of my support for the VT Mozart Festival performances. My favorite of course is the opening with the dressage performances since I am an equestrien and dressage rider. Many thanks to everyone who contribute so much with their time and talents to give so much back to the people of Vermont and surrounding communities.

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

both the performances and with members of the organization and with the performers.

Year after year, VMF has maintained excellence in the face of unruly weather, problem venues, and a myriad of other challenges to bring to the Vermont public a varied, dynamic and invariably excellent series. I build my summer around the schedule of the Festival, and have come to recognize certain concert as critical benchmarks in my year. My life is so much richer because of VMF.

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

BRING WORLD CLASS MUSIC TO WORLD CLASS VENUES.

The Vermont Music Festival is a highlight of the summer season. The music is varied with something for just about ever taste, and the childrens concerts are a wonder to behold. The staff is very friendly and visible, ready to welcome suggestions, and just well organized. We can only hope for many more summers of these wonderful settings.

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

attending the children concerts and observing the interaction of the performers with the kids. Exceptional.

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

the interaction with the staff and with patrons while helping with parking.

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

friendly, welcoming, and fun people.

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

relax and discover even more venues to showcase their first class music.

Last summer was my first Mozart, took a friend and I will continue to attend. Wonderful time at the 2 venues I attended. The barn in Richmond could do without the 80 dollar ticket, food was so-so.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

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

polite and just eager to assist.

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

challenge the Pops

Ways to make it better...

we could have more handicapped space.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

MONEY

One thing I'd also say is that...

one heck of a job. BRAVO

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.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year
