Barrand & Roberts 50th Anniversary

This concert is SOLD OUT! 
Please call 802-257-4523 if you would like to be put on a Wait List

In September 1969, John Roberts & Tony Barrand, graduate students at Cornell University, performed their first concert together as folk musicians. Singing informally at the Fox Hollow Folk Festival earlier that summer, they had met the redoubtable Maggi Peirce who hired them for her coffeehouse concert series, the Tryworks in New Bedford. With friend and supporter Mark Phillips (who owned the car!) they made the trek from Ithaca to New Bedford, marking the beginning of a long career.

In the following decades John and Tony have played all the major folk festivals and venues, and become recognized on both sides of the Atlantic as the leading ambassadors of traditional English folksong in the USA, releasing over a dozen CDs, plus a half-dozen more with the quartet Nowell Sing We Clear. Now, to celebrate their 50th anniversary as a folk-singing duo, John Roberts & Tony Barrand present this special concert which will feature many of their favorite and most popular songs from across the years.

Vermont Symphony Orchestra: Made in Vermont Tour

The VSO joins leaf-peepers on the road in late September, visiting intimate and historic venues across the state with our “Made in Vermont” chamber orchestra tour. This season marks Jaime Laredo’s 20th anniversary as Music Director, and he’s excited to conduct a program that features Ifetayo Ali, a teenage cellist from the Sphinx Program, playing Haydn’s famous C Major Concerto. (Her teachers think she could be the next Yo-Yo Ma!) Also in the spotlight is our own wonderful principal flutist, Melissa Mielens, with a concerto by Francois Devienne, often called “the Mozart of the flute.” In our third year of collaboration with the Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival, we pair a world premiere commission from composer Matthew Evan Taylor with a screening of a new film by Jeremy Lee MacKenzie. The program opens with Bartók’s lively Romanian Folk Dances.

PROGRAM:
BARTÓK – Romanian Folk Dances

DEVIENNE – Flute Concerto No. 2

MATTHEW EVAN TAYLOR – World Premiere Commission
