Vermont Symphony Orchestra

VISUALIZER ORCHESTRA – Double E Performance Center, 5:30PM

Let’s create a visual soundtrack to classical music!

The Vermont Symphony Orchestra is teaming up with Dallas-based Lightware Labs to create a projection-mapped orchestra concert. Projection mapping is technology that uses light and image to “map” a light projection onto a surface, turning ordinary walls and surfaces into dynamic, animated works of art.

The VSO uses this technology to create visual stories to accompany an hour of intense, emotional orchestral music. Our 40-piece orchestra will perform the first movement from Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherezade, the Overture to Mendelssohn’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Adagio for Strings by Samuel Barber. Compositions by contemporary composers include Jeff Scott’s “Prayer” from Sinfonietta of Dreams, Middlebury College professor Su Lian Tan’s Langkawi Overture, and Mark Lomax’s Uhuru.

Antoine T. Clark will conduct the Essex Junction performances.

General admission single tickets for $30 (with limited quantity student tickets for $10) are available starting December 17, 2021 via the Double E’s ticketing platform, See Tickets, at: https://wl.seetickets.us/DoubleEPerformanceCenter
