The VSO Brass Quintet joins forces with Counterpoint, under the direction of Nathaniel G. Lew, to ring in the holidays in style! The ensemble is pleased to present the Vermont premiere of a stunning new setting of Nancy Tillman’s beloved children’s book, “On the Night You Were Born,” by Vermont composer Travis Ramsey. The program also includes a carol singalong, a brand-new student composition, and traditional favorites arranged by Robert De Cormier. Mark your calendars so you don’t miss out on this seasonal treat—a perfect blend of brass, voices, and good cheer.
Sponsored by an anonymous donor, Eleanor Long, Jay Focus Group, Lynn Jenness & Donald Hendrich, and William & Martha Peck.
Tickets will also be available at the door and at Memphremagog Arts Collaborative after November 20.
