Curtain falls on Vermont Mozart Festival

Burlington, Vermont - December 21, 2010

A big disappointment for classical music fans-- the Vermont Mozart Festival announced Tuesday it is shutting down.

For 37 years, the festival has brought together professional orchestras to perform the works of Mozart and other classical greats at venues like Shelburne Farms and the Trapp Family Lodge.

But the festival has experienced financial troubles over the last six years due to decreasing audience size, bad weather and reduced corporate giving. After finishing last summer in the red again and unable to secure more financing, organizers were forced to pull the plug.
