Conference 75th Anniversary in 2020

It is always a milestone for ANY organization to reach 75 years of age! In 2020, the Bennington Chamber Music Conference will celebrate and honor our 75-year past, our longevity, and the immeasurable impact the Conference has had on the music world. Significant planning for this milestone is well underway, and we look forward to continuing to share with you information about this celebration. The two biggest projects we are specifically excited about are the writing of our history, led by David Webber, and the commissioning of major chamber music works.

The main goals of this celebration are to strengthen our vibrant community, within and beyond, and inspire us for a bright future. We are so proud of what our organization has become and the strength of our community, and this milestone is a testament of that strength. Therefore we look forward to receiving your comments, ideas, and support for this celebration.

If you responded to our survey, we thank you! We will share insights from that survey soon.

Keep watching this page for more information. Members of the Conference commmunity who would like to propose ideas, ask questions, or volunteer for a project may contact the 75th Anniversary Committee at
