2023 TD Bank Summer Festival Tour in South Pomfret

June 30, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Please Note: 
Due to muddy conditions in the parking lot, we are strongly encouraging ride sharing. There is limited additional parking at Prosper Valley School (1071 Pomfret Rd, a 2 minute drive from the venue), and more ample parking at Woodstock Union High School (100 Amsden Way, a 10 minute drive from the venue) where you can park and carpool to the concert with family and friends.

The grounds at Saskadena Six may be wet, so 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!

This concert is presented in partnership with Pentangle Arts.
