Healing Through Music

08/31/11 3:00PM

Music can't solve the world's problems, but it can cushion the blow and be a catalyst for inspiration.  Today we'll hear music that is free-spirited, uplifting, and cheerful as Vermont begins to rebuild. Included is a performance of Beethoven's Choral Fantasy from the 1981 Marlboro Music Festival, in honor of the town of Marlboro and the challenges it faces right now.

Today's Next Generation Concert selection features a performance of Rachmaninoff's Vocalise.
