MONTPELIER – On April 10, at 7:30 p.m., the Solaris Vocal Ensemble will present a “Springtime Serenade,” featuring an array of choral favorites including selections by Mozart and Bruckner along with spirituals and folk songs.  This semi-professional ensemble was formed with the vision that choral music can energize and inspire the human spirit. 

Based in Burlington, this choir of 24 to 30 auditioned singers is led by Artistic Director Dr. Dawn Willis. Solaris performs a wide variety of choral literature ranging from the Renaissance to the twenty-first century, from a cappella selections to works involving a variety of instrumental forces.

The Farmers Night Concert Series is a longstanding Vermont State House tradition that goes back over 100 years to a time when lawmakers entertained themselves in the House Chamber mid-week while away from home. Artists from around the state, in genres ranging from classical music to bluegrass to barbershop, perform in the well of the House Chamber each Wednesday night during the legislative session. Concerts are free and open to the public.
