A Treasured Place in the Green Mountains of Southern Vermont
In 2021, the Marlboro School of Music purchased the former Marlboro College campus known as Potash Hill, a beautiful and historic property located in the foothills of southern Vermont, which has served as our summer home since 1951. This purchase, and the establishment of Potash Hill, Inc., ensures that the property will remain intact and be preserved for generations to come, bringing a vital measure of stability to the organization, the surrounding community, and the many friends and neighbors who have lived, learned, and listened here, and who have come to treasure this special place.
We are committed to being good stewards of the land, to raising the funds necessary to preserve Potash Hill and honor its rich history, and to nurture its potential for the future. As our vision for Potash Hill develops, we invite you to explore this website, and to help us in supporting future uses of the campus that are compatible with our mission and values, and which will enhance the cultural and economic vitality of the town, region and state.
Marlboro Music, the internationally-acclaimed chamber music study center and festival, has called Potash Hill home since its founding in 1951. Explore Marlboro’s illustrious history and learn how you can experience the concerts and open rehearsals at “the classical world’s most coveted retreat” (The New Yorker).
Based on Potash Hill, the Marlboro Nordic Ski Club promotes lifelong participation in the sport of cross country skiing. The Club is responsible for design and maintenance of the extensive trail network that winds throughout the campus. Become a member today!
We are delighted to welcome the Marlboro Studio School, a new crafts school that will be based in the Visual Arts Center. Ceramics classes start soon. Visit marlborostudioschool.org for more information and to sign up for classes.
We are pleased to welcome “Joy in Your Practice” to Potash Hill this spring. Led by Grammy-winning cellist/composer Eugene Friesen and jazz great/author Kenny Werner, this inspiring musical retreat takes place on campus from May 16-19. Joy!
We are delighted to have the American Harp Institute join the many other amazing musicians on Potash Hill.
—— Repost from @yolanda_kondonassis_harp • I`m so thrilled to announce the summer session of my American Harp Institute, to be held May 31-June 9, 2024, at beautiful Potash Hill in Marlboro, Vermont. When I was a young harpist, I was lucky enough to have a wonderful summer retreat for study and inspiration, and I hope my summer sessions are a small "pay-it-forward" for the opportunities I was given on the way up.
