Manchester Music Festival
Bringing the Passion and Beauty of Classical Music to Southwestern Vermont
Manchester Music Festival typically welcomes award-winning artists from around the world for five weeks of concerts and events in the Green Mountains of Vermont during the summer season. MMF invites all to experience the joy of classical music at a number of complimentary events which are presented in addition to its premier Festival Concerts.
Sometimes music speaks louder than words. MMF will therefore continue to send Connecting Through Music emails with exquisite musical selections.
MMF will soon turn their attention toward the planning of our 2021 summer festival. The festival is immediately engaged in redirecting its time and creative energy toward the production of a digital festival for this summer (2020), which will broadcast an innovative mix of live-streamed performances, pre-recorded lectures, and interviews – all at no charge to the public.
This endeavour will not only fulfill MMF’s central mission of delivering great classical music to the region, but also feature world-renowned artists on the frontier of a new performance landscape. Their hope is to set a precedent for our future as a modern-era chamber music festival, one with both a live presence and significant digital footprint. As we solidify these plans in the coming weeks, stay tuned at www.mmfvt.org.
