Juno Orchestra Celebrates Bach with October 8 Concert
The Brattleboro Music Center’s Juno Orchestra, the region’s ‘home team’ chamber orchestra, presents a program in October reminiscent of popular Bach programs that enthralled local audiences in the past.

The concert, set for 2:30 p.m. Sunday, October 8, at Persons Auditorium in Marlboro, features the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, as well as works by his son and by Handel. As Juno founder Zon Eastes explains, “This concert recalls the wonder of the New England Bach Festival, often presented this same weekend years ago, and created by Brattleboro Music Center founder Blanche Moyse. The works to be performed were often part of the Festival program.”

Eastes, who was among the musicians taking part in the Bach Festival, adds, “I’m inspired by the promise of this concert. The music is particularly uplifting, heartening, and engaging, and we also look forward to collaborating with three talented, soloists, each with deep associations with this community.”


Misero amante: Songs of Love and Suffering

In Stile Moderno’s fall program invites the audience into the world of 17th-century Italy to indulge in every poet’s favorite subject: the joys and pains of love.

From the thrill of first attraction to the disappointment of a bad break-up, every moment of the lover’s journey was captured by the most celebrated musicians of the era, including Girolamo Kapsberger, Barbara Strozzi, Giulio Caccini, and Claudio Monteverdi. Alongside light-hearted love songs and heartbreaking laments, the concert will showcase instrumental music for guitars, theorbo, recorder, and cornetto.

In Stile Moderno is thrilled to welcome soprano, Agnes Coakley Cox, guitar and therabists, Nathaniel Cox and Cameron Welke, and recorder and percussionist, Dan Meyers to create an enchanting sound world of plucked, wind, and percussion instruments.
