Annual pops concert on tap July 2

MIDDLEBURY — The Henry Sheldon Museum will hold their annual Independence Day celebration at a Pops Concert on Monday, July 2, featuring the Vermont Philharmonic. This popular family event takes place on the Middlebury College athletic fields, nestled between and with views of the Adirondack and Green Mountains. The grounds open at 5:30 p.m. for picnics and the Concert begins at 7:30 with fireworks at dusk.
New this year will be a display of vintage cars and a raffle for six one-of-a-kind picnic baskets painted by five local artists: Robin Kent, Warren Kimble, Kathy Mitchell, Danielle Rougeau, and Ashley Wolff. Baskets are filled with local foods, gift certificates, and picnic items. The drawing will take place during the Pops Concert. Raffle participants don’t need to be present to win. (Click here for more info — and pictures — of the baskets.)
The concert will feature contemporary music, light classics, Broadway and film favorites, and WWI patriotic songs that will appeal to all ages and musical tastes.
THE VERMONT PHILHARMONIC will delight listeners at the Henry Sheldon Museum Pops Concert on Monday, July 2.
The celebrated Vermont Philharmonic is led by energetic Director Lou Kosma, who has spent his career specializing in musical education for children. Joining the Vermont Philharmonic for the concert is guest soloist Marc Dalio, an accomplished Broadway singer and actor.
Dalio’s award-winning stage credits include playing Gaston and the Beast in the Broadway national tour and the German premiere of Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast,” as Marius in the Broadway national tour of “Les Miserables,” and Chris in the International Company’s Miss Saigon. Marc is the Coordinator of Musical Theatre Studies and Professor of Voice at New Jersey City University.
This year the Sheldon Museum is pleased to recognize Nancy Rucker as the honorary chair of the event for 40 years of both staff and volunteer service.
Adult tickets are $20 ($25 after June 26), youth 12–18 $10, and children under 12 years of age free thanks to our generous business and individual sponsors. Bring blankets, lawn chairs, flashlights, and picnic dinners. Pulled pork sandwiches from Pratt’s Store will be available in the food tent.
Should the weather interfere, the concert is held in the adjacent Kenyon Arena of Middlebury College’s Peterson Family Athletic Complex.
