Play Every Town #59: Fair Haven

July 14 at 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

In May of 2022, David Feurzeig embarked on his Play Every Town project: 252 free concerts in each of Vermont’s 252 towns to combat climate change through the power of community and music. With this project David will become the first musician to perform in every Vermont municipality. He will travel in his solar-charged electric vehicle throughout the state, offering free concerts to bring attention to the interrelated issues of climate and community, while bringing the joy of music to his audiences.

Feurzeig, a professor of music at UVM since 2008, specializes in wide-ranging, genre-defying recitals that bring together music of an astonishing variety of musical styles, from ancient and classical to jazz, avant-garde, and popular traditions. These striking juxtapositions, peppered with informative and humorous commentary, create eye- and ear-opening programs that will change how you hear all kinds of music.

Each program is locally tailored. In Fair Haven, David will be joined by flutist Ayame Merkel (Fair Haven High School class of 2024) for J. Andersen’s Scherzino and Poulenc’s Flute Sonata. David will play excerpts from Schumann’s Bunte Blätter, composed the year the First Congregational Church was completely rebuilt, and a Debussy Arabesque from the year it was remodeled to its present form. Music by Bartok and by stride pianist James P, Johnson will mark the year 1926, when the church’s Knabe piano was built. The program will also include music by NYC-based composer and jazz pianist Steve Sweeting, who makes a special guest appearance for some 4-hand piano music. As with every concert in the project, this one will include its own unique sonata by Domenico Scarlatti: Sonata no. 59 for this fifty-ninth concert in the project. Other solo pieces will round out the program.
