According to Willie Docto, founder of the Eleva Chamber Players, “We’re so thrilled to be able to give John Lindsey a musical farewell. In 2005, John was the first musician invited to join our group. His ability to create a beautiful sound with his violin, his strong leadership skills and his gentle demeanor have made Eleva a uniquely inspiring experience for the musicians and audiences alike. He will certainly be missed.”
The Eleva Chamber Players is Central Vermont’s only professional string chamber orchestra and was founded in April of 2006 in Waterbury, Vermont with the mission of elevating the human spirit through music. Eleva’s concerts feature fine musicianship and fascinating dialogue that is both educational and inspiring. The conductor-less orchestra operates with a collaborative process and is composed of professional musicians with distinguished international careers from throughout Vermont and the United States. In addition to its annual November concerts, Eleva has conducted concert tours of Vermont wineries and various house concerts around the country.
