Juno Orchestra to give last performance

MARLBORO - As planned, the Juno Orchestra Project will come to a gracious, natural end. Even with the ravages of the pandemic, the havoc it played, Juno finds its end after a wonderful five-year run. Thanks to all who helped along the way.
This final push for this project will be “Zenith,” directed by Zon Eastes, set for Friday, June 10, at 7:30 pm, at Persons Auditorium at the former Marlboro College, the new home of the Marlboro Music Festival.
The program will  feature three remarkable pieces: Impromptu for Strings by Jean Sibelius; Symphony No. 92 in G major, “Oxford,” by Franz Joseph Haydn; and Symphony No. 41 in C major, “Jupiter,” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
The Sibelius work, a wondrous discovery for Juno, shone as a small, beautiful gem, inviting a look inward. Of all the works Juno introduced during its tenure, this piece seems to have stirred the most wonder. It is fitting to offer it once more, especially with all that we are still living through.
The Haydn symphony was the very first Haydn symphony played by Juno music director Eastes in a professional setting.
The Mozart symphony was chosen because Juno and Jupiter were spouses or siblings, certainly deeply entwined no matter which myth. Juno Orchestra eventually simply had to perform Mozart’s final symphony.
Tickets are $50 for patron seating, $20 for general seating, and $10 for student seating; people may choose a $50 or $20 pay it forward ticket as well, to ensure all music lovers can hear Juno’s “Zenith.” Tickets are available through the Brattleboro Music Center website at www.bmcvt.org or by calling (802) 257-4523.
