"Vermont is home to several fine community orchestras and on Friday, in a concert at Vermont Academy, the Brattleboro Music Center's Windham Orchestra prove to be one of, if not the best."
Jim Lowe, The Times Argus and Rutland Herald, 5/09
Hugh Keelan, Music Director
To celebrate its 44th season, the Windham Orchestra performs two Fourth Symphonies, both Romantic masterpieces. Maestro Hugh Keelan leads Tchaikovsky’s Fourth in November, and Bruckner’s Fourth in January. Continuing its missions of supporting local composers and community involvement, the Orchestra premieres the works of four Citizen Composers (cc) including The Social Waltzes of Frederick Palmer, Brattleboro’s postmaster from 1845-1848, arranged for orchestra by Maestro Keelan. The Orchestra’s other Citizen Composers are contemporary friends and neighbors whose talent for composing until now has been hidden. Our season closes with an orchestra first - a complete, multi-act opera in concert, Puccini’s Tosca.
