The Vermont Mozart Festival is truly a highlight of our summers in Vermont. Hearing and watching these world-class musicians perform in a variety of spectacular outdoor sites is always a magical experience. Picnicing before the performances, and then sitting in the stillness with the beauty of the surrounding music as night falls is always a special and memorable occasion.

My husband and I have been attending Vermont Mozart Festival (VMF) events for over 20 years. The VMF is a Vermont treasure. It captures the essence of what is special about summer in Vermont. These include world-class musicians performing in spectacular settings. We especially enjoy the outdoor concerts and look forward each year to picnicking with friends before the concert begins. It is a quintessential Vermont experience that we are so thankful the VMF nurtures and produces year after year.

the high quality performances and the spectacular venues.

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

courteous, well informed and efficient

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

create an endowment, provide lots of low cost tickets for low income Vermonters, line up spectacular back-up venues for when rain requires events to move inside

Ways to make it better...

Only negative experience is when weather requires a change of venue.

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

dealing with the consequences of summer weather that appears to be wetter and wetter each year

We've attended the VT Mozart Festival concerts since the first year of their existence and cannot imagine a Vermont summer without it. The Festival is well run, has top notch artists and high quality music all of which adds to the cultural fabric of this community.

While we live primarily in Northern Virginia we own a home in Vermont. We often attend concerts in our nation's capitol and can favorably compare the Vermont Mozart Festival to other concerts we have attended. Our young children also have thoroughly enjoyed the children's concerts and the venues are fabulous. We consider attending the Vermont Mozart Festival one of the our favorite summertime activities.

Every summer I look forward to the Vermont Mozart Festival. It has become an annual event for our family and has instilled a love of classical music in my children. The venues are terrific even when rain is threatning...that is what makes Vermont special! My wife, daughter, and my three sons and their families love sharing an evening picnic and a good bottle of wine and visit the many friends we have made over the years.

The Great!

the quality of the Mozart Symphony know one of the founders personally. They have enriched my love of classical music

My husband and I have attended many Vermont Mozart Festival Concerts. We usually go to The Grand Opening which also includes the Dressage at The Inn at Shelburne Farms. The Grand Opening concert usually falls on the weekend we celebrate our wedding anniversary; this year it will be 38 years!! We have been coming to the concerts for at least 18 years with family and friends. We love the concert being outside and we usually stay right at the Inn so we don't have to contend with driving home. We live just outside Plattsburgh, NY. The conductors do a wonderful job of explaining the period the music comes from and a little about the composers. The performers are just great and the music filling the warm summer air is delightful.It is the highlight of our summer and something we look forward to all year.

Living and working hard in the Washington, DC region I always long for my regular trips to Vermont to unwind and take in a little music. My wife and I always ensure at least one of our summer trips coincides with an concert with the Vermont Mozart Festival, preferably up on Luce Hill in that natural outdoor ampitheater. We take in the music, the air, and regenerate and repower.

The Great!

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

its performance in any circumstances. Good economy, rain or shine. The art is there without pretension.

Ways to make it better...

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

change very little.

More feedback...

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

the simplicity of its approach to music.

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

kind, informative and welcoming.

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

change the world's appreciation of classical music, not just Vermont's appreciation.

Ways to make it better...

It could not have been better. The concert at the rain location was the best concert I have ever been to, because the music at the ice rink was raw. Refreshing from the Kennedy Center.

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

the financial resources available to it in recent months, due to poor weather and the recession. But things are turning around thanks to its loyal patrons.

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

it will continue because its patrons are loyal and there are reasons for that.
