After two years of Covid-enforced silence, the Vermont Philharmonic joyously returns to the stage with Music Director Lou Kosma conducting. The Philharmonic winds will open the concert with Ralph Vaughn Williams’ delightful Folk Song Suite, incorporating nine popular English songs, and then continue with an amusing Symphony for Winds in G minor by Gaetano Donizetti. The string section will then take the stage to delight your ears with Mozart’s exuberant Divertimento No. 2 in B-flat Major, K. 137. This program features a performance of a movement from Jacques Ibert’s Flute Concerto by the student winner of the Borowicz Scholarship competition, Logan Crocker. The night will conclude with Johannes Brahms’ splendid Second Symphony in D Major, op. 73, composed in 1877 — an opportunity for the Philharmonic to exercise the big orchestral sound of one of the great classical works.
The Vermont Philharmonic is celebrating its sixty-third year of making beautiful music in central Vermont. You can find more information about the orchestra at vermontphilharmonic.com.
