Music Mountain is the home of the oldest continuing summer chamber music festival in this country. Founded in 1930 as the permanent home for the Gordon String Quartet, one of the leading string quartets of its time, Music Mountain is celebrating its 81st anniversary season in 2010.

Each season Music Mountaine offers a Chamber Music Series of 16 concerts, mainly on Sunday afternoons as well as a popular Saturday evening series of Jazz and Choral concerts, and a number of special events. The 16 live concerts are produced into 16 radio programs and an additional 10 concerts from past years for a total of 26 programs.  The first program this year will take place on June 13, 2010 and will be available for broadcast by July 1st.

Our mission is further enhanced through these broadcasts of the Music Mountain Chamber Music concerts, made possible by the generous support of Edward R. Hamilton, Bookseller, Falls Village, CT. Starting with one station in 1937, these concerts are now heard on over 125 stations nationwide and, through the facilities of the European Broadcast Union, by listeners in over 35 other countries.
