Champlain Philharmonic returns to Middlebury with annual fall concert series

The Champlain Philharmonic will return Middlebury this Sunday, Oct. 22, to present the fall concert series of their 14th season. The day before they will perform at Green Mountain College in Poultney, 7:30 p.m. This year the program is titled “Eutierria” (meaning to belong to the good earth) featuring works that portray the connection between music, the great outdoors and Bohemian life. Middlebury’s performance will take place at the Champlain Valley Unitarian Universalist Society Sanctuary, at 4 p.m.
The orchestra will be led by Matthew LaRocca. LaRocca teaches theory and composition at the University of Vermont, directs the South Burlington Choir and is director of Music-COMP (an organization that teaches composition to hundreds of students throughout Vermont). LaRocca also is the Artistic Curator of the Vermont Symphony’s Jukebox concert series.
Featured in this weekend’s program will be: “An Outdoor Overture” by American composer, Aaron Copland; “Pastorale d’ete” by Arthur Honegger; “The Moldau,” from Má vlast by Bedrich Smetana; and “Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6,” also known as the “Pastoral Symphony.”
Tickets will be available at the door for both performances. General admission is $15, seniors $10 and students $5.
