2010/2011 Masterworks Series 2
Saturday, December 4, 2010
Flynn Center, Burlington

The cutting edge ensemble eighth blackbird performs "On a Wire," for sextet and orchestra, the latest work from 2010 Pulitzer prize-winner Jennifer Higdon, during this co-presentation by the Vermont Symphony Orchestra and Flynn Center. The VSO's second Masterworks series program, led by Principal Guest Conductor Anthony Princiotti, opens with Weber's popular Euryanthe Overture and closes with the epitome of Finnish nationalism, Sibelius' Symphony No. 2.
