Marlboro is a town in Windham County in southern Vermont. 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 & illustrator of children's books.
After three weeks of daily rehearsals, Marlboro artists begin sharing the results of their in-depth collaborations with audiences. Public concerts are presented on Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons from July 14 to August 12, 2018, and on Friday evenings, August 3 and 10. The programs are selected from the 60-80 groups in rehearsal at any one time; only one-quarter of the more than 250 works explored during the summer can be included.
