Vermont Symphony Orchestra

Jaime Laredo
Music Director

Hymns of Happiness

All concerts begin at 7:30 pm and are preceded at 6:30 pm by Musically Speaking, a free pre-concert discussion that provides entertaining insight into the evening’s program.

Guest conductor Sarah Ioannides makes her VSO debut, opening with the VSO co-commissioned work “Riots and Prayers,” from composer Daniel Bernard Roumain. Prokofiev’s sparky and spectacular fifth symphony, written as “a hymn to free and happy mankind” while WWII was raging, offers a brilliant close to a brilliant season.
