Vermont Contemporary Music Ensemble to Present Frevo Dance Group, 10/31
For the past three summers four members of the Vermont Contemporary Music Ensemble have played summer concerts with original compositions and arrangements of music they love - programs designed for a summer evening of wonderful music. This first VCME program in its 28thseason brings elements of this program to the FlynnSpace. The group is called Frevo after an ecstatic dance by Brazilian composer Egberto Gismonti. The mission of the VCME is to present new music and this concert is a fresh take on this theme. Peter and Wendy Matthews and Steven and Bonnie Klimowski have put together a program that is soul searching, dramatic, beautiful and just plain fun.
The Vermont Contemporary Music Ensemble (VCME) is a new music ensemble specializing in performance and recording of rarely heard 20th and 21st Century chamber music and works by living composers. The ensemble also regularly commissions today's composers and facilitates outreach activities. VCME has made a significant contribution to the music scene in Vermont with over 100 commissioned works and many more premiere performances.
VCME gives annual concert presentations in Burlington & Montpelier with preconcert lectures and post concert receptions, provides professional development support for composers and performers, and conducts outreach activities for students of all ages.
