The Organization: Now preparing for its 101st season, Maverick Concerts is the oldest continuous professional summer chamber music festival in the US.

Our vision: To provide a haven of artistic excellence and to share the intimacy of live performances that celebrate the interplay between musicians and audience in a hand-hewn, historic setting in the woods.

Our mission: 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.

An enthusiastic and sophisticated listening audience draws the best roster of impressive international chamber artists as well as outstanding local talent.

Maverick currently presents more than 25 concerts during the 11 week summer season. The Sunday afternoon concerts present modern and classical chamber music repertoire along with the works of living composers. Saturday evenings are more eclectic featuring a jazz series, folk, and world music. A series of Young People’s Concerts is presented during midsummer on Saturday mornings.

The Maverick Concert Hall is now listed on the National and NY State Registries of Historic Sites and is renowned for its wonderful acoustics. In 2008, Maverick Concerts began a capital campaign to upgrade the concert site and preserve the Maverick Concert Hall for future generations. With funding from a matching grant from Save Americas Treasures, generous grants from NYSCA, and private foundations and individuals, a Master Plan was developed and is being implemented for the property. In 2016, Maverick has been selected to receive the Preservation League of New York State’s award for Excellence in Historic Preservation.

Maverick Concerts, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) New York not-for-profit corporation.
