VSO begins it annual Made in Vermont statewide tour


Friday, Sept. 25 at 7:30 p.m.—STATEWIDE — The Vermont Symphony Orchestra begins its annual fall tour on Sept. 25 continuing through Oct. 4, presenting in eight towns and villages across Vermont. This tour marks the beginning of the musical season of  the Vermont Symphony Orchestra. Autumn in Vermont signals the return of glorious foliage and glorious music. Locally, the tour comes to Castleton University on Monday, Sept. 28 at 7 p.m.

This year the program includes two charming Scandinavian miniatures (student poetry will accompany Sibelius’ evocative “Suite Mignonne”), and two sublime works featuring the violin.  Music director Jaime Laredo solos in Mozart’s third violin concerto and is joined by concertmaster Katherine Winterstein for Bach’s Double Concerto. The program also includes the traditional Vermont-themed world premiere, written by Jennifer Jolley.

Charles Smith, interim executive director of the Vermont Symphony Orchestra said, “Autumn in Vermont for the VSO begins the season with the annual Made in Vermont statewide tour. From the north to south, east and west the Vermont Symphony Orchestra brings music to state colleges and small venues. We are delighted to be under the baton of Jaime Laredo in addition to the added treat of Jaime as violinist.”
