After 18 months of Covid-imposed silence, the Vermont Philharmonic joyfully returns to the concert stage with the Annual Summer Pops Concert on the beautiful lawn of Moose Meadow Lodge at 4:00 PM on Sunday, August 8, 2021. Led by conductor Lou Kosma, the program highlights outstanding soloists from the orchestra. Concertmaster violinist Letitia Quante will play the “Meditation” from Massenet’s Thais. Clarinetist Margaret Roddy will play the haunting larghetto from Mozart’s Quintet in A. James Duncan will perform the “Trumpeter’s Lullaby” by pops favorite Leroy Anderson and Andrea Brightenback will play “Gabriel’s Oboe”, Ennio Morricone’s soaring theme from the film The Mission.
The Orchestra will entertain the audience with selections from the smash hit musical Hamilton and perennial favorite South Pacific. Also on the program: Fats Waller’s “Ain’t Misbehavin’” and George M Cohan’s “Give My Regards to Broadway!” The concerts will open with Sousa’s “El Capitan” march, and close with a rousing “The Stars and Stripes Forever” (listen for the piccolo solo).
