Twenty-four Years of Concerts in Gilbertsville

The Magic Mountain Music Farm , just outside of Morris, NY, presents two free concerts on Friday and Saturday, September 2 and 3.  This is the twenty-fourth year of these concerts, as professional musicians from all over the United States spend two weeks studying with Burton Kaplan. Guests Erika Atchley and Marvin Suson, both violinists, talk about why they return year after year to “recharge” their musical batteries in a supportive atmosphere, and take new skills back to their performing and teaching positions. The two concerts have completely different programs, and are presented in the beautiful acoustics of the First Presbyterian Church of Gilbertsville at 7:30pm both nights. http://www.wskg.org/audio/magic.mp3
