LET'S DANCE! Premieres in the Hills of Vermont as Part of TD Bank Summer Festival Tour Tonight
The annual Vermont Symphony Orchestra presents its popular TD Bank Summer Festival Tour in eight locations throughout the state. Music lovers can celebrate the long-awaited coming of summer with picnics, music and fireworks. From tonight, June 26 through Sunday, July 6, the orchestra will tour the state. "The Summer Festival Tour is a cherished summer tradition in Vermont," says executive director Alan Jordan. "The VSO is the only American Orchestra that tours its entire state every summer. Bringing music to beautiful Vermont settings is a joy for us," he says.
Under the baton of principal guest conductor, Anthony Princiotti, the program, "LET'S DANCE!" will include music from the world of dance-from waltzes to swing and polkas to salsa. Toe-tapping melodies by Strauss, Delibes, Borodin, and Gershwin will put you "in the mood" for dance hits from Benny Goodman and Glenn Miller. As always, the concert closes with the spectacular 1812 Overture, marches and a glorious display of fireworks.
