Marlboro is a town in Windham County of the "Southern Vermont" region. It was one of the first American towns to pass a resolution endorsing the impeachment of President George W. Bush in 2006, and is home to the Southern Vermont Natural History Museum, and Marlboro College.
Marlboro College was originally founded by Walter Hendricks in 1946 for returning World War II veterans, and today it hosts the "Marlboro Music School and Festival" each year.
Some notable people from Marlboro include: Newel Knight, religious leader; Richard Lewontin, biologist; Joseph Mazur, professor; Louis Moyse, flute player and composer; Blanche Honegger Moyse, conductor; Edson B. Olds, congressman; and Tasha Tudor, author & illistrator of children's books.
Marlboro Music, the unique Vermont summer community which The New Yorker described as "the classical world's most coveted retreat," will share the discoveries of its 80 resident artists on five concert weekends from July 16 through August 14, 2016. Artistic Director Mitsuko Uchida will be joined by an international group of master artists including composer-in-residence Sofia Gubaidulina and exceptional young professional musicians. Performances are on Saturdays at 8:00 PM and Sundays at 2:30 PM, with two special Friday concerts on August 5th and 12th at 8:00 PM. Programs are selected by the musicians themselves and announced one week prior to the performance. All concerts take place on the Marlboro College campus in Marlboro, VT
