Welcome to the Manchester Music Festival, now in our 40th year of bringing the passion and beauty of classical music to our southwestern Vermont community.
The Manchester Music Festival operates year-round and offers classical music performances and music education of the highest caliber.
We invite you to learn more about our performances and programs.
As a non-profit corporation, under the guidance of our Board of Directors, we produce classical music concerts throughout the year. These include seven summer concerts at the
Southern Vermont Arts Center, the Manchester Chamber Orchestra's Fall Tour, and Holiday Concerts around the Northshire. We host renowned musicians and operate a full-scholarship summer chamber music program for pre-professional performers. For children, MMF operates the Michael Rudiakov Music Academy offering private lessons in violin, viola and cello, and a youth ensemble for string players. We offer free concerts and residencies to local schools, and each July we offer Music Discovery Week when children can take a week of instrumental lessons with a member of our
Young Artists Program.
