To cap off its fourth annual Fall Residency in Stowe, exceptional alumni of The Perlman Music Program (PMP) perform chamber music masterworks and Maestro Itzhak Perlman conducts the PMP String Orchestra in a stunning Celebration Concert on Saturday, November 8 at 7:30 p.m. at the Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center in Stowe.
Drawn from all over the world, the performers are young professional artists with diverse careers, whose spirited music-making excites and inspires audiences around the globe.
New this year, the Stowe residency introduces listen-and-learn sessions for all students at Stowe Middle School on Friday, November 7. PMP ensembles will introduce their instruments and classical music, illuminate ways of listening, perform selected pieces, and talk about the joy of playing music together.
In what has become an annual tradition, on Saturday afternoon at 4:00 p.m., Vermont string students are invited to prepare a piece and rehearse with the PMP Orchestra and Maestro Perlman. This rehearsal is open for free only to ticket holders of the evening concert.
Now in its fourth year, the Fall Residency in Stowe, Vermont has brought a new dimension to The Perlman Music Program. Students and faculty enjoy four days of orchestra and chamber music study in preparation for the Celebration Concert in the beautiful Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center.
"This residency is an enormous undertaking that relies on the generous support of our whole community," says Walter Frame, president of the Spruce Peak Arts Center Foundation. "The Golden Eagle Resort provides rooms for the artists. McCarthy's, Piecasso, Phoenix Restaurant, Trapp Family Lodge, and others help with meals and special attention. Stowe Mountain Lodge donates practice space. Stowe homeowners Sidney and Morgan Stark underwrite the events, and a committee of Stowe residents guides us in ways to make this annual residency a source of pride and a critical element for the future of our Alpine village."
Founded by Toby Perlman 20 years ago, the PMP offers unparalleled musical training to young string players of rare and special talent. With a world-class faculty led by internationally renowned violinist Itzhak Perlman and vibrant programs in Shelter Island, New York City, Florida, Israel, and Vermont, PMP is developing the future leaders of classical music within a nurturing and supportive community.
