PT at the Marlboro Music Festival

All this week on Performance Today, we'll be visiting 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. As the week unfolds, we'll hear about the magic of Marlboro from the people who make it their home for seven weeks each summer.
