Saturday, March 12 at 7:30 p.m. — BRANDON — Vermont Virtuosi returns to Brandon Music on March 12 at 7:30 p.m. with a program of chamber music. “Once Upon a Time” features music that is narrative in character and takes listeners on a sonic journey that is sometimes pastoral, sometimes lively, and most everything in between. Flutist and Vermont Virtuosi artistic director Laurel Ann Maurer, clarinetist Karen Luttik, bassoonist Julian Partridge, and pianist Claire Black will perform music by Pierre Gabaye, Andre Jolivet, Robert Wykes, Ramiro Cortés, Ricklen Nobis, as well as Vermont composers Thomas L. Read and David Gunn, and the world premiere of a newly commissioned piece by Northfield composer Dennis Báthory-Kitsz.
Vermont Virtuosi, whose instrumental makeup depends on the concert theme, performs a varied repertoire of both familiar and new. Although only three years old, the ensemble has already commissioned and premiered seven important works from Vermont composers.
This event is a part of Vermont Arts 2016, celebrating public funding for the arts.
Concert tickets are $20. A pre-concert dinner is also available for $20. Reservations are required for dinner and recommended for the show. Venue is BYOB.
