Musicians from Marlboro offers exceptional young musicians from the summer Festival together with seasoned artists in chamber music programs of rarely-heard works and masterpieces of varied instrumentation. Each year, more than twenty-five artists take time from their regular activities to bring Musicians from Marlboro concerts to cities around the country. The Musicians from Marlboro touring program has introduced many of today's leading solo and chamber music artists to American audiences, including pianists Richard Goode and Andreas Schiff, violinist Jaime Laredo, flutist Paula Robison, and soprano Benita Valente. Now in its thirty-sixth season, Musicians from Marlboro offers audiences across North America a sample of the varied programs and spirit of music making so characteristic of Marlboro, prompting the Washington Post to describe Musicians from Marlboro as "a virtual guarantee of musical excellence."
