Choral Concerts Focus On Vermont Composers


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.
