Yellow Barn's Summer Season

summer 2015: celebrating the infinite riches of chamber music for 46 years

Yellow Barn Concerts: July 10-August 8
Composer in Residence: Jörg Widmann, August 3-August 8
Young Artists Program concerts: June 27, July 2, and July 3
Special Event: Battle Trance, June 19

Each summer Yellow Barn presents over 30 public events between mid-June and early August. In addition to 23 concerts, Yellow Barn invites the public to four masterclasses each summer, and Saturday night concerts are preceded by a pre-concert discussion at the Putney Public Library. We also welcome visitors on campus for a meal and open rehearsals during our annual Open House, and invite families of all ages to enjoy Yellow Barn's annual Children's Concert.

"By the conservative calculus that governs the agendas of so many mainstream summer chamber music festivals, concerts like those at Yellow Barn shouldn’t really exist. And yet they do."—The Boston Globe Read more
