Blanche Moyse conducts a chorus at the Marlboro Music Festival in the late 1950s.

The Marlboro Music festival has been delighting classical music fans for 60 years, and for many of those decades, photographer Clemens Kalischer has been documenting the celebrated musicians on the school's campus.

Clemens turns 90 this year. In honor of that milestone birthday, his work is on display at the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center.

VPR's Mitch Wertlieb spoke with Kalischer recently from his home in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. Kalischer said his long career in photography started very much by accident.

Listen at 7:50.
