Vermont Philharmonic Presents Winter Concert
February 16 @ 2:00 pm
The Vermont Philharmonic ‘s 2020 Winter Concerts feature one of the most iconic orchestral works, and an incredibly talented young cellist. The concerts will take place on Saturday evening, February 15th at the Elley-Long Music Center at St Michael’s College (7:30 pm), and Sunday afternoon, February 16th, at the Barre Opera House (2:00 pm), with music director Lou Kosma conducting. Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors, and $5 students and are available at the door or through the VP website: www.vermontphilharmonic.com.
The program opens with the heroic “Prelude to Act III” from Richard Wagner’s opera Lohengrin.
Then the 2019 winner of the Borowicz Memorial Scholarship, cellist Layla Morris, will perform the first movement of Robert Schumann’s romantic Concerto for Cello, opus 129. The program continues with Virgil Thompson’s suite of music for the 1936 depression era film, The Plow that Broke the Plains. Thomson’s music draws upon rhythms and moods of folk songs and hymns to capture the spirit of the High Plains.
The program concludes with one of the greatest works for the symphony orchestra, Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 in c minor, Op. 67.
