Vermont’s Heliand Consort presents “Crossing the Bar” program

Saturday, Jan. 21 at 7:30 p.m.—BRANDON—The Vermont based woodwind trio Heliand Consort is presenting a program titled “Crossing the Bar” at Brandon Music on Saturday, Jan. 21 at 7:30 p.m. The group will explore the relationship between classical and folk music, with selections ranging from Flemish Renaissance folk songs to music of Dvorák and Gershwin. Flutist Berta Frank, oboist Katie Oprea, and clarinetist Elizabeth LeBlanc are inspired by composers like Dvorák and Bartók, who used folk elements from their cultures in their own compositions. The folk theme continues as the musicians perform as vocalists in traditional folk songs of the British Isles and a setting of Alfred Lord Tennyson’s “Crossing the Bar.”

Celebrating their 10th season, Heliand Consort brings spirited classical music to audiences around Vermont. Its members, all long-time Vermont residents, are committed to presenting engaging programs which combine great classical repertoire with song and story. Their season opened in October with a collaborative benefit concert for Head Start, featuring student ensembles from local schools. Concert tickets are $20. Reservations are recommended. Venue is BYOB. Call 802-247-4295 or email info@brandon-music.net for info.
