Bennington Chamber Music Conference

08/12/11 8:00AM

Phillip Bush, Music Director of the CMC East
Even as the Marlboro Music Festival is celebrating its 60th anniversary season, Vermont is the home of another music festival that's now rounding out its 66th(!) season. This morning I'll talk with Phillip Bush, Music Director of the Bennington Chamber Music Conference and Composer's Forum in anticipation of their final concert tomorrow evening. 

We'll also enjoy the final morning "Marlboro Month" selection today, with a bubbly live performance of Francis Poulenc's Sextet for Winds from the 2009 Festival.
