NEW DATE AND TIME!
Let’s create a visual soundtrack to classical music!
The Vermont Symphony Orchestra is teaming up with Dallas-based Lightware Labs to create a dynamic light and visuals show and orchestra concert. This technology 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 Sea and Sinbad’s Ship” from Scheherazade – Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov
- Langkawi Overture– Su Lian Tan
- Adagio for Strings – Samuel Barber
- Overture to A Midsummer Night’s Dream – Felix Mendelssohn
- “Prayer” from Sinfonietta of Dreams – Jeffrey Scott
- Uhuru: Freedom’s Song – Mark Lomax, II
Antoine T. Clark will conduct this performance.
Single tickets will be available via the Paramount Theatre. The box office is open 10am-5pm on Fridays and 10am – 3pm on Saturdays, at 36 Center Street in downtown Rutland. Call 802-775-0903 or visit their website at https://www.paramountvt.org. Main floor seats $25; balcony seats $20; student tickets $10. A $4 per ticket surcharge applies to all phone/internet orders.
