Counterpoint with the VSO brass quintet
Nathaniel Lew, music director
With all the snow that has been falling, we’re definitely in the holiday spirit, and can’t wait to ring in the holidays with the VSO Brass Quintet! The program includes traditional favorites, a singalong, a brand-new student composition, and a bit of silliness
from PDQ Bach and Tom Lehrer.
We hope to see you for this perfect blend of brass,
voices, and good cheer!

Solaris presents Holiday Lights
Dawn Willis, artistic director
HOLIDAY LIGHTS – Holiday Concert 2017
Solaris hosts guest instrumentalists the Green Taylor String Quartet in a concert of luminous holiday music, including  a return to several works from Solaris’ very first concert – in celebration of this, its Fifth Anniversary Season, 2017-18.
The program includes Francesco Durante’s Magnificat for soloists, chorus, strings, and organ; as well as two rarely-heard works by Viennese composer Richard Stoehr, a celebrated instructor at Saint Michael’s College from 1941-1950: A Grace Before Christmas and Ave Maria for men’s voices; Leonard Bernstein’s Gloria Tibi for women’s voices with tenor soloist; an exclusive premiere of a new composition based on Emily Dickinson’s poem It Sifts from Leaden Sieves by Solaris tenor David J Tetrault, a graduate student in Music Composition at the Vermont College of Fine Arts in Montpelier; and revisiting several works from Solaris’ very first holiday concert, Carol from an Irish Cabin by Dale Wood and Northern Lights by Oja Gjeilo.
For the Burlington concert on Saturday evening (a change from the usual Sunday afternoon time slot), the Madrigal Singers from Champlain Valley Union High School in Hinesburg will join Solaris to perform the Parker-Shaw arrangement of Fum, Fum, Fum.
