Music is food for the soul, and this weekend it will help provide nourishment for the body, courtesy of the Green Mountain Mahler Festival. The Vermont classical ensemble joins forces with the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants and the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program for a noteworthy benefit performance to aid famine-relief efforts in Africa. Under the direction of conductor Daniel Bruce and chorus master Richard Riley, players and singers hit all the right notes in a stirring rendition of Johannes Brahms’ A German Requiem. Jeh Kulu Dance and Drum Theater, Bread and Puppet Theater, and guest vocalists also perform.
