The Vermont Symphony Orchestra’s commitment to touring has been clear since its founding in 1934. “Whereas most other orchestras originate in a single city, performing there in one concert hall and touring occasionally, the VSO dedicated itself to traveling to any gymnasium, armory, racetrack or hillside where an audience could be found,” reads its website. This dedication continues with the ensemble’s annual Made in Vermont Statewide Tour. Classical music lovers across the state revel in noteworthy performances of works by Christoph Willibald Gluck, Benjamin Britten and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, along with a new commissioned piece by Brattleboro composer Paul Dedell. Music director and violist Jaime Laredo (pictured) and violinist Pamela Frank are the featured soloists.
