The Unquenchable Spirit

Green Mountain’s 12th season opens with Kodály’s haunting Duo for violin and cello, the seventh Shostakovich string quartet, written as a memorial to the composer’s wife, and the driving energy of the Glazunov cello quintet.

Our Classical Encounters series will again bring its informal chamber music performances to non-traditional venues around Burlington. 2016 concerts will be listed here by June 26; click here for a listing of the schedule for the 2015 Festival. Our musicians look forward to meeting you at these events! 

Here is a fine article about our Classical Encounters program by arts writer Amy Lilly of Burlington Free Press:

Students Practice Playing, and Advocacy, at GMCMF

Renowned cellist Matt Haimovitz will be our guest again in 2016 for a residency from July 20-22. His residency will include opportunities for cello students and chamber ensembles to receive coachings, a presentation for festival students on commisioning new works, a chamber music master class open to the public, and Haimovitz's performances on our July 22 Artist Faculty Series concert.

Green Mountain Chamber Music Festival is "where the future of classical music resides," says renowned flutist Eugenia Zukerman. Enjoy this video, made for Burlington's CBS affiliate during the first visit Zukerman made to Green Mountain. This season Eugenia Zukerman will visit the Festival again, performing a rarely heard flute quartet of Giovanni Battista Viotti on July 8.

There are a multitude of summer music festivals in the United States, some world-renowned, like Tanglewood, and some small and intimate, like the Green Mountain Chamber Music Festival. I first visited this remarkable Vermont festival in 2012 and produced a 'vlog' in partnership with MusicalAmerica.com that summer.
