Description: Heliand Consort’s 13th Season continues with Winter Gathering, a unique concert that flows seamlessly between poetry readings and music inspired by this darkest and coldest of seasons in New England as expressed through folk songs, chamber music and poetry. The program includes selections from Vivaldi’s “Winter,” Waldteufel’s “Skaters Waltz”, a Troika (or sleigh ride) by Prokofiev, Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride” and others. Winter songs include Margaret MacArthur’s “Vermont Sugar-Maker’s Song” and Don Jamison’s “Stars.” The featured artwork for the concerts is “Stars” by Lyndonville artist, Mary Simpson. Heliand Consort (pronounced “hell-ee-und”) is a woodwind and piano ensemble of native Vermonters or longtime residents featuring flutist Berta Frank, oboist Katie Oprea, clarinetist Elisabeth LeBlanc, bassoonist Rachael Elliott, and pianist Cynthia Huard. Now in its 13th season, the group has appeared throughout Vermont and in New Hampshire, upstate New York, and three tours of North Carolina. Children and families are welcome. Handicap parking and entrance at rear of the building.
