2023 TD Bank Summer Festival Tour in Shelburne

July 4, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Tickets will be available at the gate. We have received reports of light scattered showers so please plan accordingly.


VSO’s TD Bank Summer Festival Tour is back with a lineup of American favorites to get you dancing and celebrating the most anticipated time of year in Vermont. Guest trumpeter and jazz legend Ray Vega joins the Vermont Symphony Orchestra and Argentinian/Italian conductor Michelle di Russo in a concert of swing, jazz, spirituals, and marches. A “…hornman with deep roots in Latin Music and Afro-Cuban Jazz” (New York Daily News), Vega is known as a prolific, state-wide performer and as host of Vermont Public’s Friday Night Jazz program. Relax under the balmy summer skies with feisty, soothing, and unforgettable music by Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Thelonious Monk, George Gershwin, John Philip Sousa, Johnny Mandel and more. Bring your picnic baskets and summer spirit.
Fireworks will take place at the conclusion of the performance!
