The VSO feeds bodies, hearts, and minds post-Irene

Your Vermont Symphony Orchestra is hitting the road for its 16th annual foliage season Made in Vermont Music Festival statewide tour featuring world renowned violinist Jaime Laredo. We are encouraging audiences to also support the flood relief effort, and offer three opportunities for you to provide food for the body, the heart, and the mind:

>> bring non-perishable food items to help replenish the depleted Vermont Foodbank inventory;

>> bring a contribution for the Vermont Farm Disaster Relief Fund; or

>> bring a contribution for the VSO to deliver free SymphonyKids educational outreach programs to schools in the most devastated towns.

Enjoy your VSO and help to rebuild Vermont. We hope you can come. Thank you. Keep reading for the complete tour schedule and program.
