Vermont Symphony Orchestra


Programs by the Vermont Symphony Orchestra’s Jukebox Quartet allow four outstanding members of the Orchestra a chance to strut their stuff with an eclectic mix of contemporary and classical repertoire presented in an informal format.

For our March 2022 concerts, we’re shaking things up and swapping two string players with two percussionists for a new, whirlwind take on Jukebox. Violinist Brooke Quiggins and cellist John Dunlop are joined by percussionists D. Thomas Toner and Nicola Cannizzaro for a singular musical experience, curated by VSO Artistic Advisor and Project Conductor Matt LaRocca. Our Jukebox musicians dive into works by traditional and cutting-edge composers, and are joined in this concert by the Vermont Youth Orchestra Quartet featuring Justin Lee and Emma Xia, violin; Elizabeth Messier, viola and Jonah Hutchin, cello.
