It is a joy to be back in the Haskell that is hands-down the most exceptional venue in the country as it straddles U.S.-Canadian border. This convening of two countries for one concert is a powerful metaphor as we see borders fade and we come together as citizens of the world, united through music.
Music Director Jaime Laredo leads the VSO in a program as colorful as our famous fall foliage. Our traditional world premiere commission takes a creative twist as we partner with the Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival to pair Brattleboro composer Paul Dedell’s new work with a new film by Jesse Kreitzer. Dedell’s work will be presented in concert format during our fall tour. Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante, a richly inventive double concerto for violin and viola, features Jaime Laredo and his longtime colleague, superstar violinist Pamela Frank. Lighthearted works by Gluck and Britten round out the program.
