Thursday, July 9, gates open at 5pm for picnicking. Concert begins at 7:30pm and concludes with a fireworks finale to the “1812 Overture.” Suicide Six Ski Area, South Pomfret, Vermont
Anthony Princiotti, conductor, and Jamie Laredo, musical director, with the Vermont Symphony Orchestra invite one and all to take a journey to the enchanted “Middle Earth” via symphonic suites and works “fantastique.” The theme of this season’s TD Bank Summer Festival Tour is “Spellbound” and offers a musical portal to places inhabited by hobbits, witches, wizards, and more. Under the baton of principal guest conductor Anthony Princiotti, the VSO will share works ranging from Berlioz to Debussy to Tchaikovsky. This year’s program opens with an 80-second fanfare entitled “The Ghost of John Phillip Sousa” written by Vermonter Peter Hamlin in honor of the VSO’s 80th birthday.
Bring a picnic and nestle into the historic hills of Suicide Six for this family-friendly concert that offers a once-a-year opportunity to enjoy the splendor of a Vermont summer evening while becoming “Spellbound” under the stars.
