Marlboro Music Festival

Weekend of August 7, 2010

PT at the Marlboro Music Festival

We spent the past week on Performance Today featuring the legendary Marlboro Music Festival in Marlboro, Vermont. Host Fred Child spent some time there recently. It's a rare "republic of equals," as its founder Rudolf Serkin called it, with young professionals and seasoned veterans playing side-by-side. This weekend, we'll hear about the magic of Marlboro from the people who make it their home for seven weeks each summer. Plus, Bruce Adolphe drops by for another Piano Puzzler.
