Musicians from Marlboro, the touring extension of the renowned Marlboro Music Festival in Vermont, offers exceptional young musicians from the summer Festival together with seasoned artists in chamber music programs of rarely heard works and masterpieces of varied instrumentation.  Each year, more than twenty five outstanding artists take time from their regular activities to bring Musicians from Marlboro concerts to cities around the country.  

The Musicians from Marlboro touring program has introduced many of today’s leading solo and chamber music artists to American audiences; among them are pianists Jonathan Biss, Richard Goode, Murray Perahia, Yefim Bronfman, Jeremy Denk, András Schiff and Peter Serkin.

Now in its forty-seventh season, Musicians from Marlboro offers audiences across North America a sample of the varied programs and spirit of music making so characteristic of Marlboro, prompting the Washington Post to describe Musicians from Marlboro as “a virtual guarantee of musical excellence", and The New York Times to depict it as “Extraordinary… rising stars and music legends play side by side”. Alex Ross, in a ten-page feature article in The New Yorker magazine described Marlboro at “the classical world’s most coveted retreat”.
