Vermont Mozart Festival
March 8, 2010

I love the VT Mozart Fest! No matter who you are, but especially if you are visiting VT, you should attend a VT Mozart Fest concert during the summer. VT at its best! I have attended about 5 Mozart concerts. My favorite venue is Shelburne Farms; down by the lake on the gorgeous property of the Vanderbilt's farm. Bring your picnic basket full of yummy foods; wine, beer, cheese, bread, fruit, salad, etc even put in a pair of candlesticks for your picnic blanket. What could be more romantic and enjoyable? And I haven't even mentioned the beautiful music. Somehow the music is even more wonderful (if that's possible) under the evening sky. I go to the Mozart Festival for the whole experience; the music, the amazing surroundings, the food, and the drink. You must go...you don't know what you are missing!

The Great!

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

the picture perfect surroundings on opening night at the VT Mozart Festival on the grounds of Shelburne Farms.

Ways to make it better...

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

get more money coming into it; to insure it will be around for a long time. I would also find better rain venues.

More feedback

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

the high quality entertainment. Great music and great venues.

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

all friendly, helpful, well informed.

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

get better rain venues. Ones that are the same caliber as the outdoor venues.

Ways to make it better...

the weather in VT always cooperated and if the rain venues were of a higher caliber (as pleasing or almost as pleasing as the outdoor venues).

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

the VT weather. If we continue having wet summers like we have the past 2 or 3 years people will not be so interested in buying tickets. VT Mozart Fest needs better indoor venues!

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

I love the Mozart Festival. No matter the weather I always go to the opening at Shelburne Farms. I am willing to take the risk of the weather for the potential of such a wonderful experience.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
