Music Mountain is managed by a group of dedicated volunteers as it has been since its founding in 1930. It may well be the only cultural institution of its importance to be so managed. This permits the money Music Mountain raises to be used to fulfill its mission of education and performance (aside from a portion going to necessary maintenance).
Funding for Music Mountain has always come primarily from the audience attending these concerts, either as ticket revenue or as contributions.
The generosity of Music Mountain’s friends, which include the artists who perform here for far below their customary fees, enables us to continue to bring you wonderful music played by distinguished and dedicated artists.
We accept donations online through our secure online box office system. You can choose to make one-time and recurring (for example, monthly) donations to Music Mountain. You can choose to honor a specific person with your donation. We hope you will take advantage of this feature. You will find the link for online donations at the bottom of every page of our website or follow this link.

In Appreciation: Pat and Ben Heller
Music Mountain is deeply grateful to Pat and Ben Heller of Sharon, CT for making possible the most important improvement in Gordon Hall since it was built in the summer of 1930. Thanks to their gift, Gordon Hall has been air conditioned and, because of the added capacity of heating, permits us to extend the concert season into spring and fall. Gordon Hall now has a new comfort level for our audience. Think how much better it is for our beautiful Steinway piano not to be exposed to the heat and humidity.
So, whether musician or audience-member, as you sit here in this wondrous concert hall on a sweltering summer afternoon or evening, please take a moment and join with us to say a quiet thank you to a very generous couple: Pat and Ben Heller.
Music Mountain’s Concerts and Programs are supported in part by awards from:
The National Endowment for the Arts
The Connecticut Commission on Culture & Tourism
The Hellen Plummer Foundation
