The Mountains and Music committee of AMC's Boston Chapter sponsors two weekends each year that combine music-making and outdoor activities. Instrumentalists join together to play chamber music, then accompany the chorus in a large choral and orchestra piece. Singers form informal groups to sing madrigals, rounds, and other small ensemble pieces. In addition to chamber music, instrumentalists may play Brandenburg Concertos (J.S. Bach) or other similar 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 either at Nature's Classroom at the Sargent Center near Peterborough or in the White Mountains, alternating years, and takes advantage of seasonal outdoor activities, including skiing and snowshoeing.
We hope you'll join us for a weekend and tell your musical friends as well! The only prerequisite is sight-reading ability on your instrument or voice part.
