Music Mountain is famous for its fabulous chamber music. Since 1930. Renowned quartets, in beautiful rural setting. In a hall with perfect acoustics--that's air conditioned. What's not so well known are their amazing jazz concerts, held on some Saturday evenings at 6:30. Anderson [sax] twins...More

I've been here several times over the past several years, most recently a month ago for a baroque concert. It's vastly better than it was a couple of decades ago, when there was no air conditioning and the discomfort of summer Sunday afternoons made it...More

This is a no frills type playhouse. A true mountain retreat however just a little too rustic. We went to hear a swing band which was very good. Too bad there isn`t really a dance floor, who could sit still when Glenn Millers “In The...More
