Musicians from Marlboro perform at the Clark each year. Their April 2003 performance prompted the Berkshire Eagle's Andrew Pincus to write, "The troupe's annual visit to the Clark is always a happy harbinger of spring." This time, the ensemble performs at the beginning of Williamstown's Holiday Walk Weekend, December 6-7.
