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.
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.
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.
Love it I travel with my kids from Georia every ummer to see at least one show. We love to make a picnic an dsoend the day at Shelburne Farms
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.
