Mission Statement

Music Mountain was founded in 1930 by Jacques Gordon, first violinist of the Gordon String Quartet, with the primary mission of education through the performance of the chamber music literature, specifically, the music for the string quartet.

This mission is realized by bringing together professionals and amateurs, adults and children, for performances and seminars, by developing new audiences and by providing access to the experience of live music.

Now in its eighth decade, Music Mountain continues to bring life to this mission through a wide variety of teaching and performances by artists who come to Music Mountain from all over the world.

The mission is further enhanced through the broadcasts of the Music Mountain Chamber Music concerts. Starting with one station in 1937, these concerts are now heard on over 125 stations nationwide and, through the facilities of the European Broadcast Union, by listeners in over 35 other countries.
