Welcome to Music Mountain!
The beautiful and serene chamber music center in the foothills of the Berkshires. Music Mountain is America’s longest running chamber music festival and the oldest performing arts institution in Connecticut. Music Mountain was conceived and managed by Jacques Gordon, one of the great violinists of the 20th century. Its significance in the world of music is that it is the only summer concert and educational institution devoted primarily to the string quartet, as it has been since its founding in 1930.
Our 89th season starts on June 10, 2018 and features 16 chamber music concerts through September 23 on Sundays at 3 PM. Our Twilight Series runs from June 16 through September 22 and presents 15 concerts on Saturdays at 6:30 PM. Various community events and the Music Mountain Academy complete our 89th season.
