Open to ALL instrumentalists and vocalists, including brass, winds, strings, piano, guitar, and percussion.
New Music On The Point is situated on Lake Dunmore beneath the Green Mountains of Vermont and under a nighttime sky filled with stars. There are rehearsal studios and practice cabins that dot the woods and rustic bunkbed cabins, most with lake views. Chef Steve and his staff serve three locally-sourced, sometimes foraged, gourmet meals daily!
