About the 2016-17 Season
Emotion. Intensity. Connection. Shared. Summit. Beauty & Delight.
The Windham Orchestra offers you a season of life-and-death emotion, virtuosic challenge, intellectual intensity and profound connection. We all experience music as a direct contact with these shared human phenomena and each of our concerts offers a rich and beautiful access to our own core.
In our opening concert, we experience what it is to live with the recent history of our town of Brattleboro, what it is to live in nature and the elements, what it is to be a flawed hero. Later: family drama painted very large; music that endures as a perpetual summit, no matter how frequently we scale it; purest beauty and delight.
We hope you'll join us at one of our upcoming concerts!
Join us in celebrating the richness of musical talent in our area
The Windham Orchestra features local musicians and composers. The 2016-2017 season marks our 47th year of making music together in Brattleboro, Vermont. We take pride in our history of providing symphonic music to Southeastern Vermont and our commitment to keeping classical music vital and building future audiences.
The Windham Orchestra serves four important roles in the musical community:
1) Performing live orchestral music in Brattleboro and surrounding towns;
2) Providing performance opportunities for musicians of all backgrounds;
3) Educating local school children; and
4) Providing an orchestral ensemble for performance of music by local composers.
Please attend our rehearsals and concerts. We welcome your participation as audience members, volunteers, and contributors. If you want to find ways for more active participation, send an email indicating your desire to become active.
