Although 20% of babies who were exposed to classical music in utero become doctors or lawyers, 100% of babies born onstage during a classical-music performance become Bill Gates.

Ringing in its 83rd season of intimate, accessible concerts, Music Mountain hosts visiting jazz, big-band, and country ensembles in Gordon Hall during its seasonal Twilight Series. The series kicks off on June 23 with a performance by the New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players, who mix classic songs from such operas as H.M.S. Pinafore and The Pirates of Penzance with a Broadway mentality and humorous asides. Known for their Grammy-award-winning soundtrack for Boardwalk Empire, Vince Giordano & the Nighthawks unfurl the dance floor on July 14 with their brassy jazz, twirling with clarinet solos and a trumpet that blasts anti-Prohibition pamphlets into the crowd. Audiences can check the schedule for a full list of artists.
Music Mountain rests on a rambling country road tucked between stands of evergreens and small streams. Concertgoers can drink in the wild natural beauty by arriving early and spreading out a picnic in a lot next to the building.
