Just in: Marlboro is secured for music for a centurymain
The future of the music college and festival is safe for the rest of the 21st century.
MARLBORO, VT – (January 28, 2019) – Christopher Serkin, chair and president of Marlboro Music, Kevin Quigley, president of Marlboro College, and Richard Saudek, chair of the College board of trustees, announced today that the boards of trustees of Marlboro Music and Marlboro College have approved a new 99-year lease arrangement—and a major building project on the college campus—initiating an exciting new chapter in the historic relationship between these two prominent institutions.
Since its founding in 1951, the Marlboro Music School and Festival has held its world-acclaimed summer program for leadership training in music on the leased campus of Marlboro College, a progressive liberal arts institution devoted to intensive, independent learning in a collaborative and self-governing community. Over the past seven decades, this dynamic relationship has enriched the southern Vermont region and provided a model for how non-profit organizations can work together to achieve mutual goals in cost-effective ways.
