2021 Festival Calendar

MAINSTAGE CONCERT I: Favorite Piano Quartets

Elley-Long Music Center at St. Michael’s College 223 Ethan Allen Avenue, Colchester, VT

Few ensembles in history have had the sustained artistry and success that the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio has had for 45 years. They are particularly beloved in Vermont, in part thanks to Jaime Laredo’s 20 years as music director of the Vermont Symphony Orchestra. The trio is joined on this program by star violist and composer Nokuthula Ngwenyama, and they will give one of the first performances in the world of Elegy, an LCCMF co-commission with several other presenters around the U.S. This concert will honor pianist Joseph Kalichstein who passed away in March of 2022. Anna Polonsky will perform in his place. Join us at 2:15pm for a pre-concert conversation with Resident Composer, David Serkin Ludwig and Soovin Kim.

This event is included with purchase of a Grand Festival Pass! Individual tickets to this and other mainstage concerts available here.

$25 – $40

MAINSTAGE CONCERT II: The Soldier’s Tale

Elley-Long Music Center at St. Michael’s College 223 Ethan Allen Avenue, Colchester, VT

The brilliance of The Soldier’s Tale shows why Stravinsky is such a seminal figure in music composition. A ragtag band of instruments serves as the musical backdrop for the colorful folktale about a soldier, his fiddle, and the devil. The irrepressible artist and director, Doug Fitch, gives a virtuoso performance as the narrator and actor of all of the various characters of this theatrical work. Join us at 6:45pm for a pre-concert conversation with Resident Composer, David Serkin Ludwig and Soovin Kim.

This event is included with purchase of a Grand Festival Pass! Individual tickets to this and other mainstage concerts available here.

MAINSTAGE CONCERT III: Little Symphonies

Elley-Long Music Center at St. Michael’s College 223 Ethan Allen Avenue, Colchester, VT

While small chamber music groups are often the ideal vehicle for composers to express their most intimate musical ideas, sometimes chamber ensembles behave more like a flexible version of a full symphony orchestra. The colorful orchestrations and brilliant solo parts of the works on this closing program of the festival will dazzle the senses. Join us at 2:15pm for a pre-concert conversation with Resident Composer, David Serkin Ludwig and Soovin Kim.
