Welcome to our 94th Summer Festival:
Celebrating Home and Belonging in 2023

Music Mountain has been home to riveting chamber music performances since 1930, and jazz since 1987. This summer we are celebrating many of the stories that turned Music Mountain into such a magical place and, in doing so, we invite you to reflect on the concept of Home and Belonging, the theme of our 94th season, through chamber music and jazz concerts, family concerts, and pre-concert talks, taking place on 16 consecutive weekends, from June 4 through September 17, 2023. ​​​​​​​

​​​​​​​Free Pre-Concert Talks and Family Concerts will explore the season theme: Join Us!

Audiences continue to praise the outstanding quality of the events at Music Mountain, the exceptional acoustics of air-conditioned Gordon Hall, and the beauty and peaceful serenity of our mountaintop campus. While The New Yorker has described Music Mountain as “the summer shrine of the string quartet,” recent concertgoers see Music Mountain as “a peaceful green oasis” and highlight its “amazing venue, ambience, and experience.” 

Jazz at Music Mountain is thriving and will feature a very special line-up this summer, including favorites such as The Wanda Houston Project, Swingtime Big Band and Galvanized Jazz Band, and international greats such as Paul Winter, Maucha Adnet with The Brazilian Trio, the Bill Charlap Trio, and other exciting concerts. 

Our 94th Season Opening Benefit Concert & Reception is on June 4, 2023, featuring Mozart & Bach Concerti with Benjamin Hochman, Piano & Friends. Don’t miss it!

At Music Mountain, there is a sense of belonging from the performing artists, the audience, and the great music that keeps bringing us back to Gordon Hall year after year. I hope you can join us.
