Now in their 10th season, Vermont ensemble Heliand Consort have a clear mission for their music. “We strive to bring light, joy and healing to the lives of our listeners through the visceral experience of hearing great live music,” they declare on their website. Three members of the classical and contemporary quintet spread the love with the woodwind program “Crossing the Bar.” Flutist Berta Frank, oboist Katie Oprea and clarinetist Elizabeth LeBlanc take to stages in Burlington and Brandon to explore the relationship between classical and folk music. Selections range from traditional tunes of the British Isles to compositions by Dvořák and Gershwin to a setting of the program’s namesake, Alfred Lord Tennyson’s poem “Crossing the Bar.”
