My wife and I have made it a tradition to go each season. We enjoy the settings and music very much. We exspecially enjoy the outdoor concerts.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
