The Vermont Symphony Orchestra’s “Fiddlesticks!” String Trio will present two performances at Rick Marcotte Central School December 4.
Members of “Fiddlesticks” are: David Gusakov, violin; Hilary Hatch, violin and viola; and Bonnie Klimowski, cello. (They also bring “Godzilla,” the bass fiddle, with them!) Their dynamic performances are designed to introduce children to the most important members of the symphony orchestra and to make some of the key concepts in classical music-making come alive. Longtime members of the VSO, the performers are funny, friendly, interactive—and wonderful musicians.
These performances are part of the Vermont Symphony Orchestra’s statewide SymphonyKids education program, which reached over 30,000 schoolchildren last year with 283 presentations serving 195 schools in 170 different communities. The VSO’s traveling ensembles visit all corners of the state as part of an outreach program known as the Lois H. McClure “Musicians-in-the-Schools” Program.
Performances at Rick Marcotte Central School are at 12:45 p.m. and 1:45 p.m. For more information on “Fiddlesticks!” or the VSO’s SymphonyKids programs, please call Eleanor Long at (800) 876-9293 ext. 14.
