Music lovers can celebrate the long-awaited coming of summer with picnics, music and fireworks. From June 26 through July 6, the orchestra will tour the state. “The Summer Festival Tour is a cherished summer tradition in Vermont,” said executive director Alan Jordan. “The VSO is the only American Orchestra that tours its entire state every summer. Bringing music to beautiful Vermont settings is a joy for us.”

Under the baton of principal guest conductor Anthony Princiotti, the program, “LET’S DANCE!,” will include music from the world of dance—from waltzes to swing and polkas to salsa. Melodies by Strauss, Delibes, Borodin, and Gershwin will put you “in the mood” for dance hits from Benny Goodman and Glenn Miller. As always, the concert closes with the 1812 Overture, marches and a fireworks display.

Concerts begin at 7:30 p.m. and gates open at 5:30 p.m. for picnicking. Ticket information is available at www.vso.org or by calling (800) VSO-9293.
