(June – September) Maverick Concerts is America’s oldest continuous summer chamber music festival. With its rustic 1916 concert hall and idyllic surroundings, Maverick Concerts is the perfect location for great chamber music, and has played host to some surprisingly historic moments in music. For instance, John Cage’s most famous – and infamous – piece, “4’33”” received its premiere at Maverick in 1952, with a young David Tudor at the piano. Maverick’s season is often as diverse as it is excellent, with chamber ensembles, jazz ensembles, vocalists, theater pieces, and many others. Tickets are available through the website, and there are a number of discounts available for students, group sales, and for the Young People’s Concerts, which are free to students and youth and take place on Saturday mornings. Regular ticket prices are quite reasonable at $25. Just as its neighbors at the Woodstock Festival changed the world in 1969, so has Maverick Concerts has pushed boundaries and kept traditions alive for over half a century. (MS)
