Vermont Symphony Orchestra


On those dark Vermont winter nights, the VSO is here to keep things fun from the comfort of your own home. Join VSO Artistic Advisor and Project Conductor Matt LaRocca and local DJ extraordinaire cRAIG mITCHELL as they host VSO’s first ever Rock n’ Bach Trivia Night!

If you think you know your Lizzo, Lady Gaga, and Led Zepplin from your Ravel, Rachmaninoff, and Respighi,  VSO’s online Trivia Night is for you (even if you’ve never heard of Lizzo or Respighi, or only know a bit of Bach and the Beatles). There’s no cost, and you stand a chance to thoroughly enjoy 90 minutes online of brilliant banter, music-themed trivia mindbenders, and win some awesome prizes. All you need is a laptop and a phone – we’ll walk you through how to log in and play the game.

  1. Join the Zoom event – click here. This will bring you to the virtual room where Craig Mitchell will be hosting the game, and he will guide your experience.
  2. The game will be played via Crowdpurr. There is no app to download – simply click here and choose a username. You may want to watch the Zoom on your laptop and play through Crowdpurr on your phone, or vice versa – or you can have both open on one device.

With nearly 27 years behind the decks, cRAIG mITCHELL has served as a resident at New York City’s legendary Tunnel and Limelight nightclubs. He’s played the country’s most celebrated venues and club nights while also doing his thing for crowds in Canada, the Dominican Republic and Jamaica. cRAIG continues residencies at Rise in Boston and Twist in Miami, but focuses on his several more open format weeklies in Burlington, VT – including hosting Trivia Nights at Waterworks, Winnoski’s favorite eatery.
