Vermont Mozart Festival R.I.P.

12/22/10 10:00AM By Walter Parker

VT Mozart Festival concert at Shelburne Farms
No more sunset picnics at Shelburne Farms listening to the Mozart Festival Orchestra--the Vermont Mozart Festival announced yesterday that it was closing shop after 37 years.  We'll mourn its passing with Mozart's Piano Quartet in G minor, played by an ensemble including pianist Menachem Pressler, a frequent performer at the Festival over the years.

Also today, Vivaldi's Magnificat.
