The Mountains and Music committee of AMC's Boston Chapter brings together participants of all ages who share a love of classical music and the outdoors for two weekends each year to combine music-making and outdoor activities. The weekend features a collaboration of orchestra and chorus members, culminating in an informal in-house combined performance.
- Instrumentalists choose music from the extensive AMC music library and may play Brandenburg Concertos, wind octets, string ensembles or chamber works with unusual instrumentation.
- Singers form informal groups to sing madrigals, rounds, and other small ensemble pieces.
- Listeners are always welcome too!
The fall weekend is held at Joe Dodge Lodge at Pinkham Notch, where participants can enjoy hiking in the beautiful fall foliage in the White Mountains.
The winter weekend is held alternately at Nature's Classroom at the Sargent Center near Peterborough or in the White Mountains, taking advantage of seasonal outdoor activities, including skiing and snowshoeing.
We hope you will join us for a weekend and tell your musical friends as well! The only pre-requisite is sight-reading ability on your instrument or voice part.
