2017-18 Chamber Series Continues Dec. 9
Our Chamber Music Series continues Saturday, Dec. 9, with conductor and pianist Ignat Solzhenitsyn, who grew up in Vermont and was a piano student of the BMC’s own Chonghyo Shin. Conductor laureate of the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia and principal guest conductor of the Moscow Symphony Orchestra, he is recognized as one of today’s most gifted artists, and his lyrical and poignant interpretations have won him critical acclaim throughout the world.
The Chamber Series event is set for 7:30 pm at the BMC Auditorium, 72 Blanche Moyse Way (across from Living Memorial Park). For tickets and more information, contact the BMC at (802) 257-4523 or visit bmcvt.org
Northern Roots Presents! Master Irish fiddler Brian Conway
Mark your calendar for Sunday, Dec. 3, when New York-born fiddler Brian Conway, a leading exponent of the tastefully ornamented Sligo fiddling style made famous by the late Michael Coleman, takes the stage at the BMC. The winner of two All- Ireland junior titles in 1973 and 1974 and the All-Ireland senior championship of 1986, Brian’s early studies were with his father Jim of Plumbridge County Tyrone and with Limerick born fiddler/teacher Martin Mulvihill. However, it was the legendary fiddler and composer Martin Wynne who taught him the real secrets of the County Sligo style.
The concert is set for 7 pm in the BMC Recital Hall (seating will be limited). BMC Faculty member Keith Murphy, cornerstone of the Brattleboro traditional music community and a widely respected Irish guitar player will accompany Brian.
NOTE — There will be limited seating, since the venue is the BMC Recital Hall.
Our 2017-18 Program Guide features an original work by local artist Petria Mitchell and you can enjoy this beautiful landscape in your home, too!
