SKYLARK at Highlight!

December 31, 2023 at 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

SKYLARK’s New Years’ Eve performance, “Darkness & Light,” features a program of chamber music paired with poetry. From local superstars, such as former Vermont Poet Laureate Chard deNiord and composer Evan Premo, to international treasures such as Amanda Gorman and Dreamers’ Circus, SKYLARK’s concert is sure to engage, enchant and delight audiences of all ages. With classical roots and contemporary style, Skylark’s catalog of chamber music showcases original folk arrangements from the Nordic and Celtic regions. Paired with a bespoke collection of poetry, this interdisciplinary program explores the seasonal shift from darkness to light — just as one year ends and another begins.

SKYLARK is an eclectic contemporary string ensemble based in Shelburne, Vermont. With decades of experience in Vermont’s music community, SKYLARK’s catalog of work challenges the boundaries between the classical and folk traditions, creating innovative and original works for audiences near and far. Influenced by the Nordic and Celtic regions, SKYLARK’s music is melody-driven with unique energy, irresistible flair and undeniable beauty.

SKYLARK is: Ben Lively (violin, baritone violin, guitar, arrangements), Jane Kittredge (violin), Ana Ruesink (viola) and John Dunlop (cello).
