(Falls Village, CT) Live music is back at Music Mountain! On Sunday, July 4, Music Mountain’s 92nd Chamber Music Concert Season kicks off with the Shanghai Quartet -- called "utterly sublime" by The New York Times -- playing Beethoven String Quartet in B Flat Major, Op. 18 #6, Zhou Long Chinese Folk Songs and Smetana String Quartet in E Minor, “From My Life.” Chamber music concerts will continue every Sunday afternoon at 3pm through Labor Day.
Audience Safety First
To keep our patrons safe during concerts, seating capacity will be in accord with state health and federal CDC guidelines. Gordon Hall will keep its 16 screen doors open. Large, quiet fans with UV lighting will provide constant ventilation. A complete change of air will take place at intermission. A new area made available at the back of the hall will allow patrons to cue for the washrooms while distanced. Strict cleaning protocols will be implemented to keep all patrons safe. Masks and physical distancing are required. Ushers will direct people and make everyone feel as comfortable and welcome as always.
In addition, thanks to a grant from the Northwest Connecticut Community Foundation, the Khurshed Bhumgara Fund, the Northwest Corner Fund of the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation, and individual supporters, this summer Music Mountain concerts will be available in three settings: in historic Gordon Hall, on the Music Mountain lawn (with a large screen and amplification), and at home via live stream.
Stay tuned for the “Jazz and More @ Music Mountain” Concert Series, to be announced later this month.
