Centennial Season

We are proud to have kept alive Hervey White’s dream of a home for 
great music in Woodstock. Mavericks 2015 season marked its hundredth summer of glorious
music, performed in our historic 1916 concert hall and echoed in the surrounding woods. 

Maverick is vigorous and vital as it was in 1915, when the festival was conceived by its founder, the visionary poet, philosopher, novelist, and community builder Hervey White.

Maverick’s hundredth season of Music in the Woods was a brilliant success. It included the world premieres of works commissioned from three esteemed composers, a free pre-season family day of music and fun, and a record twenty-nine concerts, including jazz, world music, dramatic readings, and concerts for young and family audiences.

As the oldest summer chamber music series in America, Maverick Concerts has served as the blueprint for all the festivals that followed.

Maverick upholds and preserves Hervey White’s vision of a permanent Music Chapel for what he called “the highest art,” chamber music. To build the hall, Hervey recruited a small army of artists and other volunteers, who constructed it by hand in 1916. We honor and sustain this incomparable paradigm of rustic splendor, and the Hall is now a multi-starred attraction on the National Register of Historic Places. Its superb acoustics and unique character, simultaneously grand and intimate, are ideally suited to the live performance of chamber music and other art forms involving a soloist or small ensemble.


Maverick’s second century of Music in the Woods begins in June 2016.

We hope we’ll see you there, for another glorious summer of glorious music!
