The Central Vermont Chamber Music Festival announces the release of its first highlight CD: Festival Harvest

"The Central Vermont Chamber Music Festival has come a long way since it was founded in 1993 by Peter Sanders, a New York cellist who grew up spending his summers in the Randolph area. An indication of just how far is its excellent New CD, "Festival Harvest," a compilation of live performances of works by Mendelssohn, Schönberg and Frank Bridge at the Chandler Music Hall in 2000 and 2004.

When I first heard the album, I had recently heard an excellent performance of Mendelssohn's A Major String Quintet at Vermont's justly revered Marlboro Music Festival. The same work opens this CD, and I actually preferred the Randolph performance. That's big praise."

For Kids

The Central Vermont Chamber Music Festival
presents a special

Concert for Kids
Saturday, August 25th, 2018 at 10:30 am - Note Time
Chandler Music Hall

Our Concert for Kids will be a chance to Listen Up! Festival Artists will perform some of the music from the concert that evening and the kids in attendance will have materials on hand to write or draw about the music they hear. They will be mentored by Vermont artist Edward Koren and writer Marjorie Ryerson. This is a wonderful opportunity for the kids to enjoy a special concert just for them and think about the music in a different way. The artwork and written words will be on display in the Chandler lobby that evening for the Saturday night concert.

Made possible in part by a generous grant from the Lamson-Howell Foundation

Admission at the door: $6.00
