The Vermont Symphony Orchestra is hitting the road again, just in time for Vermont’s famous foliage to blanket the state in a stunning sea of reds, oranges, and yellows. This year, we are visiting Vermont’s state colleges, the opera houses in Vergennes and Derby, and we are thrilled to announce that we have added a new stop on our fall tour for the vibrant arts community in Brattleboro at the Latchis Theater! This year’s program opens with a piece Mozart wrote for his sister, then turns to American composer Aaron Copland’s brooding Quiet City, featuring two VSO soloists in the unusual pairing of solo trumpet and solo English horn. This year’s commission, in clarion fields, comes from Norwich-born composer Zach Sheets; we are excited to bring his piece to life and share it with Vermonters for the first time! The program concludes with principal guest conductor Anthony Princiotti’s own arrangement of Alexander Borodin’s String Quartet No. 2, which provided much of the music for the Broadway musical Kismet.
