We are pleased to continue our broadcasts of chamber music performances from the 2006 season at Music Mountain.  These will be presented on Wednesday evenings, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., through June 20.

Music Mountain, located in the scenic hills of northwest Connecticut (Falls Village), is the oldest continuing summer chamber music festival in the United States.  It was founded in 1930 by Jacques Gordon as the permanent home of the Gordon String Quartet, a base from which it could tour and then return to teach, study, and perform in Gordon Hall. Each summer, Music Mountain brings in leading musicians to perform the great quartet and quintet masterpieces.

Music Mountain’s 2007 season will begin on Sunday, June 17, and chamber music concerts will continue on Sunday afternoons and occasional Saturday evenings through Sunday, September 9.  The season also includes Saturday evening jazz concerts.  For more information, visit www.musicmountain.org.
