Juno “Zenith”

June 10 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

As planned, the Juno Orchestra Project comes to a gracious, natural end Friday, June 10. Even with the ravages of the pandemic, the havoc it played on all our lives, Juno finds her end after a wonderful five-year run. Thanks to all who helped along the way.

This final push for this project, supported by the Brattleboro Music Center, is Juno “Zenith,” set for Friday, June 10, at 7:30 p.m., at Persons Auditorium at the former Marlboro College, the new home of the Marlboro Music Festival.

The program features three remarkable pieces: Jean Sibelius’ Impromptu for Strings after Op. 5, No. 5 and 6; Franz Joseph Haydn’s Symphony No. 92, Oxford; and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Symphony No. 41, Jupiter.

The Sibelius work, a wondrous discovery for Juno, shone as a small, beautiful gem, inviting a look inward. Of all the works Juno introduced during its tenure, this piece seems to have stirred the most wonder. It is fitting to offer it once more, especially with all that we are still living through.

The Haydn symphony was the very first Haydn symphony played by Juno Music Director Zon Eastes in a professional setting. “I was utterly delighted, and chuckled out loud at Haydn’s brilliance and wit,” he recalls. “I grasped then that great music need not first be serious, but could crackle with humor and cajole with good-hearted invitation. The entire symphony, start to finish, has been a top-line favorite of mine ever since.”

The Mozart symphony was chosen because Juno and Jupiter were spouses, or siblings, certainly deeply entwined, no matter which myth you’re conjuring. Juno Orchestra eventually simply HAD to perform Mozart’s final symphony.

“The orchestrations for the Haydn and Mozart are conveniently identical and larger than any used by Juno before,” says Eastes, “so, yet again, we are thrilled for this opportunity to showcase the remarkably talented musical forces in this region.”
