Board & Staff

Manchester Music Festival is operated by a dedicated board of directors who work closely with the artistic director and business operations manager. This volunteer group executes all elements of concert performances as well as MMF's Young Artists Program. Each one is passionate about chamber music and sharing it with our Southern Vermont community.
