Season Three 2019-20

Juno Orchestra’s third season offers two well-crafted programs. Each performance will advance the Project’s five goals. Mark your calendars!

Family Connections

To open the season, we feature cellist Jacob Charkey, a Brattleboro native, in a premier performance of J/J: Music for Cello and Strings, a newly commissioned, 15-minute work by Stanley Charkey. Stan was for many years music professor at Marlboro College and, yes, he is Jake’s father! Also on the program: a Haydn Symphony, No. 46 to be exact, in B Major; a Divertimento by Mozart, and, perhaps blurring the family connections idea, a symphony that was once purported to be by Mozart, but is actually by Michael Haydn, Franz Joseph’s younger brother, by five years. There’s a story there!

Juno in June III

For this year’s Juno in June program, Juno will welcome another wonderful Brattleboro native, Sam Amidon, to perform folk songs, some in special settings made for Sam by Vermont composer Nico Muhly. Sam lives in and works from London these days. The program will also include Romanian Folk Dances by Bela Bartok and yet another amazing Strum und Drang symphony by Haydn.

Saturday, June 20, 7:30 p.m.

The Juno Orchestra Project exists because of several interconnected energies: the region’s finest musicians, a growing and appreciative audience, a spirit of willing collaboration, and inspiring funding. These forces, coming together, add to the region’s cultural and economic well-being.
