Concerts at Music Mountain are in air-conditioned Gordon Hall, at 225 Music Mountain Road, in Falls Village, Connecticut. Directions
Here are some specific jobs we need help with:
Alphabetically sort two sets of tickets, and distribute to patrons as they come to the Box Office to pick up their tickets right before the concert.
Help with Concessions Sales before the concert and, if possible, at intermission. We sell ice cream, bottled drinks, snacks, etc. (no hot drinks, no pouring nor any food or drink preparation).
Parking (direct incoming cars to the available parking areas); welcome patrons at the entrance to Gordon Hall and on the Great Lawn; distribute concert programs.
Check patron tickets at the entrance to Gordon Hall and usher patrons to their seats (seats are marked with letters and numbers, but are difficult to see for some patrons).
Help set up the stage for pre-concert talks and family concerts (this may include moving somewhat heavy items such as a portable screen, a projector, and a side table). Technical expertise not required, but welcome. Pre-Concert Talks are 2-2:45 PM on the following Sundays: July 16, 23, and August 13, 27. Family Concerts are 2-2:45 PM on the following Sundays: June 25, August 6, and September 10.
About Music Mountain
Since 1930, generations of music lovers have come to Music Mountain for an exceptional concert experience, and today, audiences continue to praise the outstanding quality and consistency of the events at Music Mountain, the exceptional acoustics of air-conditioned Gordon Hall, and the beauty and peaceful serenity of Music Mountain’s mountaintop grounds. Recent concertgoers see Music Mountain as “a peaceful green oasis” and highlight its “amazing venue, ambience, and experience.”
Music Mountain, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, began as the unique vision of Jacques Gordon, Chicago Symphony concertmaster from 1921 to 1930 and the founding first violinist of the Gordon String Quartet, one of the leading quartets of its time. The buildings at Music Mountain form a well-designed campus in the Colonial Revival style. They were built by Sears, Roebuck & Company’s prefabricated housing division and are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
