Maverick Concerts, America’s oldest continuous summer chamber music festival, thrives on the love of great music amid the rustic splendor of its unique site in the unspoiled Catskills woodland. The superb acoustics of the historic hall, hand-built in 1916, make it ideally suited to the intimacy of live chamber music performance.
Maverick Concerts continues the vision of Hervey White, founder of the collaborative Maverick Art Colony. Artists and other volunteers built the hand-hewn “music chapel” in 1916, and the Hall is now a multi-starred attraction on the National Register of Historic Places.

Maverick Concerts’ mission is to bring a broad range of classical and contemporary chamber music performances of the highest
caliber to a wide range of audiences in a unique, rustic hall at the heart of Woodstock’s cultural heritage. Our vision is to provide a haven of artistic excellence and to share the intimacy of live performances that celebrate the interplay between performer
and audience in a hand-hewn, historic setting in the woods.
