Fri, February 9, 2018 & Sat, February 10, 2018

A performance commenting on words and music, touching the spirit with sensitivity, emotion and downright silliness and weirdness. This concert will showcase the music of three Vermonters, Allen Shawn, Peter Matthews and Derrik Jordan responding to words, the spirit and African traditions with a heartfelt remembrance of a child’s death (George Rochberg’s “Ricordanza”) and music written responding to the very creative poems of Lawrence Ferlinghetti (Libby Larsen’s “Ferlinghetti”). Tickets available at the door: by donation. Suggested: $25 regular; 12 discount..

Not just new music — a new musical experience!

This year the Vermont Contemporary Music Ensemble celebrates its 30th season of performing and recording rarely heard works of the 20th & 21st centuries with a primary interest in living composers. We also will be celebrating our 30th Anniversary with another special performance featuring the poetry of Vermont’s poet laureate, Chard deNiord in April 2018. VCME has made a significant contribution to the music scene in Vermont with 92 commissioned works and more than 114 premiere performances to date.
