Made in Vermont - three weeks from today!

OK, OK. I know! It's been around four months since our last post. I suppose things get a little hectic around VSO headquarters. We've been gearing up for our 2010/2011 season, which kicks off with our Made in Vermont Music Festival statewide tour. If you take a peek at the little Vermont graphic above, you'll see the areas we are visiting. Specifically, they are: Vergennes, Johnson, Lyndonville, Derby Line, Bellows Falls, Randolph, Woodstock, and Castleton. Do you live near one of these towns? Well, get on the horn (802-86-FLYNN) or visit FlynnTix for tickets to one of these intimate concerts. This year we feature Vermont composer Don Jamison, and three concerti featuring our very talented principal players. Heidi Soons, harpist, will play a concerto by Handel; Shelagh Abate, horn, will be featured in Rachmaninoff's Vocalise; and flutist Albert Brouwer will play CPE Bach's Flute Concerto in d minor. Conductor Anthony Princiotti rounds out the program with Mozart's Symphony No. 29. So come on down and listen to your Vermont Symphony Orchestra in action!
