Open to the Public

The Heliand Consort presents music from the interwar period including novelty piano, French impressionism, the American songbook, and Poulenc’s spectacular Sextet for piano and winds. This vibrantly creative program captures the dramatic contrasts of the period from the heights of the roaring twenties to the depths of the Depression. A dynamic evening of chamber music with Vermont’s own piano and woodwind ensemble: Berta Frank, flute; Katie Oprea, oboe; Elisabeth LeBlanc, clarinet; Joy Worland, horn; Julian Partridge, bassoon; and Cynthia Huard, piano. Pre-concert talk by Rebecca Mitchell, Assistant Professor of History at Middlebury College, at 2:30 PM. Mitchell holds advanced degrees in Piano Performance. Her special interest is the intersection of music, poetics and identity in history. Her monograph, Nietzsche’s Orphans: Music, Metaphysics and the Twilight of the Russian Empire is to be published in January 2016 by Yale University Press.
