Were bringing small ensembles across the state with a series of free concerts on a Breweries Tour, Homes & Gardens Tour, and Gazebos & Bandstands Tour. Each of these venues enjoys a special theme, whether it’s the pomp and circumstance of a concert on the town green, the lush delight of music in historic home gardens, or the spirit of a brew pub. VSO musicians will visit 17 Vermont towns from St. Albans and Stowe to Greensboro and Grafton – join us!

Pull up your camping chair, pack up the sunscreen, and enjoy some rousing brass music – VSO is bringing pomp and circumstance to sunny town greens across the state with free brass quintet concerts featuring trumpet, trombone, horn, and tuba. March on down to the Richard Ellis Memorial Bandstand for a free concert on July 18 at 3:00 pm.
