John Dunlap & Laura Markowitz • BCA Summer Concert Series

Enjoy lunchtime tunes all summer long with FREE City Hall Park Summer Concerts. Bring your lunch, meet up with friends or coworkers, and enjoy free music.​

John Dunlop has been performing in the Northeast for over twenty-five years as Principal cellist with the Vermont Symphony, Burlington Chamber Orchestra, Opera Company of Middlebury, Opera North, Vermont Mozart Festival, Vermont Virtuosi and the Green Mountain Opera Festival. He has performed as soloist with both the VSO and BCO, as well as many chamber music performances with notable area musicians. John is also the cellist with the fledgling new music ensemble TURN, which features many of the most interesting young composers of our time.

He studied under Richard Kapuscinski at Oberlin Conservatory and Bonnie Hampton at the San Francisco Conservatory and has played in master classes for Yo Yo Ma, Jerry Grossman, Steve Doane and others. John has also composed and recorded several award-winning film soundtracks for short films, including a documentary on childhood hunger in Vermont, where he called on his skills as a guitarist and bouzouki player in addition to the cello. He has played with Bernadette Peters, Lyle Lovett, Trey Anastasio, and
Phish. In addition to his teaching at Dartmouth, John teaches privately in Richmond, Vermont.
