From breweries to bandstands, July performances feature something for all
The Vermont Symphony Orchestra (VSO) is pleased to announce its 2021 summer season, consisting of a series of 17 free, themed chamber concerts and two 25-piece orchestral performances, all held throughout July.
After touring all of Vermont’s counties last summer for casual outdoor performances, the VSO is looking forward to visiting towns across the state once again. These small-format concerts feature string and woodwind quartets and brass quintets, and will be themed by location: breweries, homes & gardens, and town gazebos & bandstands. While locations are still being secured, concertgoers can plan for events in Burlington, Island Pond, Woodstock, Bennington, Greensboro, Pittsford, Grafton, South Hero, and St. Johnsbury, among others.
Our ticketed, two-show Summer Under the Stars concerts will be held at Shelburne Museum on July 24 in partnership with Higher Ground, and in Rutland on July 25 (details to follow). These 25-piece chamber orchestra concerts, VSO’s first live orchestra performances since early 2020, will be conducted by the Creative Projects Chair Matt LaRocca and feature music to celebrate nature and the great outdoors.
“We are thrilled to offer such a robust, state-wide tour schedule as it becomes safer to gather,” says VSO Executive Director Elise Brunelle. “This summer, the VSO will be part of Vermont’s great celebration of the arts and a return to live music we’ve all missed.”
