On July 24 the Vermont Symphony Orchestra returns to its well-loved July open-air concerts with “Summer Under the Stars” at Shelburne Museum, featuring singer-songwriter Francesca Blanchard (pictured right) and conducted by VSO’s Creative Projects Chair Matt LaRocca. In partnership with Higher Ground, the concert features a dynamic 25-piece chamber orchestra playing music inspired by nature and the great outdoors with French-born, Burlington-based songstress Blanchard. Reunite with the VSO at this family-friendly evening featuring music from Bizet’s opera Carmen, Aaron Copland’s feisty Rodeo, Argentinian tango composer Astor Piazzolla, the legendary composer William Grant Still, impressionist composer Claude Debussy, and the VSO orchestra backing Blanchard on arrangements of her own repertoire.
The concert will be presented in line with COVID-19 guidelines. For more information, click here.
