Music Mountain Announces 95th Summer Festival Dedicated to the Power of Music

Highly anticipated chamber music and jazz concerts, family concerts, and pre-concert talks will headline the storied music festival in its acoustically pristine Gordon Hall on 16 consecutive weekends, from June 2 through September 15

FALLS VILLAGE, CT – Music Mountain Summer Festival, one of the longest-running festivals of its kind in the world, announces its 95th season, opening on June 2, 2024 and running for 16 consecutive weekends through September 15, 2024. Sunday chamber music concerts and Saturday evening jazz concerts with leading ensembles and guest artists form the heart of the season. Tying it all together is the theme of “From Struggle to Triumph: The Power of Music,” a look into the creative ferment that produces works of unquenchable uplift and beauty.

Artistic Director Oskar Espina Ruiz explains, “From time immemorial, composers, performing artists, and audiences have come together to overcome our individual and collective struggles through music. Whether with ancestral music rituals, at 9/11 memorial concerts in the fall of 2001, in Beethoven’s late string quartets, African American spirituals, or simply when our imagination takes flight, music is often capable of synthesizing a society’s aspirations and challenges. Once we see what could be, we gain the power to overcome, to bring about change in ourselves and in our world. The power of music propels us from struggle to triumph.”
