March's Concert Theme: Paris in the Spring

Mozart's elegant "Paris" Symphony and Schumann's expressive "Spring" Symphony naturally suggest our March concert theme.  

The soloist for New Music Advisor David Ludwig's new bassoon concerto-- intriguingly titled "Pictures from the Floating World"--is one of the principal bassoonists of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra (having won the position two years ago fresh out of music school). There is a French connection here as well: Ludwig's piece invokes the Japanese art prints that fascinated Debussy.

Performance Dates:

Saturday, March 14th at 8 pm
Flynn Center for the Performing Arts, Burlington

Sunday, March 15th at 3 pm
Paramount Theatre, Rutland

Monday, March 16th at 7 pm
Latchis Theatre, Brattleboro
