VSO’s Brass Quintet and Counterpoint Chorus to visit Newport December 21

NEWPORT — The Vermont Symphony Orchestra’s (VSO) Brass Quintet is teaming up with Counterpoint Chorus for another year of celebrating the holiday season with traditional favorites, a carol singalong, and more.

The pairing will present an evening of festive music and jubilee to Newport on December 21.

The event will take place at the United Church of Newport.

The ensemble will feature the Vermont premiere of Nancy Tillman’s beloved children’s book, “On the Night You Were Born,” by Vermont composer Travis Ramsey — as well as a world premiere composition by Burlington High School freshman Nancy Widyawati, entitled “Snowfall.”

A violist in the Vermont Youth Orchestra, Widyawati has been composing music through the Music-COMP program for three years.
