The Vermont vocal ensemble Counterpoint is presenting three concerts this weekend celebrating the music of Vermont composers.

Counterpoint's Artistic Director Nathaniel Lew says it's been a longtime dream of his to present such a concert.

The concert will include works from three members of the UVM Music faculty-David Feurzeig, Patricia Julien, and Thomas L. Read-as well as works by Peter Hamlin of Middlebury College and Dennis Bathory-Kitsz.

Counterpoint also commissioned a piece by Jorge Martin.

The concerts will be presented Friday, Saturday and Sunday, April 5th through the 7th, in Colchester, Montpelier and Manchester, Vermont.
