Being a non-profit at the base of Vermont’s highest peak, tucked away on a road that is impassible half the year, it’s not easy having a presence in the arts in this unique community. Yet, we believe this is where we can offer the best experience to highlight both Vermont and nationally acclaimed talent. This is what we do well. We offer voices that need to be heard in such a naturally beautiful setting and it’s why we at Spruce Peak Arts find such reward in our work.
This summer we have the pleasure of being able to incorporate our love for Mt. Mansfield with some of our programming. The Old Mozo Days are a series of indoor and outdoor events that are presented in partnership with Spruce Peak at Stowe. These events include Dar Williams, The Hot Sardines, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Del & Dawg, Songs and Stories are all being presented to show our audience how lovely life can be up here on the mountain. Where the name Old Mozo comes from is the Abenaki name for Mt. Mansfield, meaning “Moosehead Mountain”. We think Old Mozo Days will be a great expression of how we live and work, and our vision for a non-profit arts organization in Vermont.
So come join us one evening after a day of hiking, biking, swimming, golfing, fishing, or tubing. Most folks who engage in outdoor activities say that food tastes better and senses are heightened after being outdoors. Well, just imagine how good the music will sound and how vibrant the evening will be with us up here on Old Mozo. We are shaped by our surroundings and we just happen to be right next to one of the most spectacular views in Vermont. That’s no coincidence!
