String Band

String Band with Jill Newton
Wednesdays, September 4 through November 27 (13 weeks)
5:00 - 6:15pm
Cost: $130 (drop-ins welcome $12)

String Band is looking for new members!
Come and enjoy Main Street Arts longest running educational class! Play your instrument in a group setting and practice traditional square dance and fiddle tunes from around the world. All string instruments are welcome.

Jill’s Bio
If there’s something happening at Main Street Arts, which is usually the case, Jill Newton most likely has a hand in it. As a musician, artist, and instructor, not to mention a board member for many years, she’s been an important presence at MSA since its inception, and her contributions over the years have taken a variety of forms. Anything involving music probably includes Jill, whether it’s accompanying songs for the Winter Holiday program or playing for the cabarets and other musical productions. Her fiddling, both as a solo player and in an ensemble, gives a harmonious lift to every performance. Another musical group that depends on Jill is the Main Street Arts String Band. Jill started this offering in the mid-1990’s, making it the longest continually running class in Main Street Arts’ history. It meets throughout the year and is comprised of seasoned musicians, beginners, and everything in between. Currently there are twelve registered members who make up the band, (frequently joined by past members), playing a wide variety of string instruments (violin, cello, guitar, banjo, harp), along with accordion, keyboards, recorder, and pennywhistle. The group rehearses for 1 ½ hours each Wednesday and plays tunes that range from traditional to contemporary and waltzes to reels. Jill provides most of the music, choosing selections that are accessible but still beautiful, while at the same time keeping the group focused and in tune. She also guides less-experienced musicians through difficult passages. Most of all, however, Jill creates a joyful atmosphere and makes sure everyone is having fun. The String Band has built up quite a repertoire over the years and has taken their music to other venues besides MSA. For many years they’ve performed in the Saxtons River Fourth of July parade and on the bandstand, at Main St. Arts annual picnics, and outside fundraisers for MSA. The String Band is always looking to expand its membership and encourages musicians of all levels to join their ranks.

Opera Company of Middlebury “Tosca”

Opera Company of Middlebury “Tosca”

Tosca premiered in Rome in 1900, and since then has become one of the most-performed operas of all time. Known for its searing drama and arching melodies, it contains three of the most famous arias ever written. At the center of the drama are three vibrant, larger-than-life characters: Tosca, a diva-like actor who is in love with painter and activist Cavaradossi, and Scarpia, the corrupt military officer who will use his power to have Tosca for himself. The opera’s depiction of the abuse of power during wartime seams sadly relevant today.

Jeremy Mohney brings lively Swing Music to Brandon Music on Saturday October 19th at 7:30pm.

Jeremy Mohney brings lively Swing Music to Brandon Music on Saturday October 19th at 7:30pm.

It was five years ago that Jeremy Mohney and his Swing Band first performed at Brandon Music and wowed the audience with his catchy rhythms, floating melodies and expressive musicianship. Brandon Music now welcomes back this exceptional band on Saturday 19th October at 7:30pm.

With infectious energy, Jeremy Mohney and His Band, based out of Colorado, capture the sounds of swing with a feel that can't be reproduced by many alive. Always rooted and honoring the greats like Armstrong, Ellington and Waller, who set the groundwork for the music, he plays with his own faithful, yet unique take. His band plays the old favorites as well as originals written by Mohney himself that capture the feel of the classics seamlessly, showing how fresh it's always been. Keeping crowds smiling and dancing all over the US in speakeasies, swing dances and festival stages alike, Jeremy Mohney shows no sign of stopping.

Jeremy Mohney works with top Colorado musicians like Greg Schochet (Halden Wofford and the Hi*Beams, Katie Glassman and Snapshot), Matt Cantor (Gipsy Moon), Alex Heffron, Chris Carland (Bill McKay Band), Kyle Ussery (Bill McKay Band) to give you the genuine sounds of swing with glaring personality. Sharing stages with Colorado greats Vince Herman (Leftover Salmon), members of Elephant Revival and Swing sensations Solomon Douglas and Jake Sanders add to his salt as a performer. Jeremy is always writing and recording new music for the tradition. His EP called "Solving The World's Problems" was released in February 2017 and he's got his fifth release coming soon, an EP called "Burning In Me". With many original releases, more on the way, and a busy schedule, don’t miss this chance and experience for yourself Jeremy Mohney and his music. You will see how genuine his enthusiasm is for this incredible and joyous musical art form.


Concert begins at 7:30pm. Concert tickets are $20. A pre-concert dinner is available for $25. Reservations are required for dinner and recommended for the show. Venue is BYOB.

Trio Sefardi Concert

Trio Sefardi celebrates the musical heritage of the exiled Jews of Spain, the Sephardim, with songs in Ladino about love and courtship, holidays and hope. Trio members Susan Gaeta (vocals/guitar), Tina Chancey (bowed strings), and Howard Bass (guitar/lute) are dedicated to bringing the vibrant past into the living present and to continuing the musical traditions of those who created and sustained Sephardic song traditions over the centuries. They have performed extensively with their mentor, the Bosnian-born singer/composer and 2002 National Heritage Fellowship honoree Flory Jagoda, and with La Rondinella and the Western Wind.

Trio Sefardi has performed at the Kennedy Center, the National Gallery of Art, the Piccolo Spoleto Festival, the Center for Jewish History and the Greek Jewish Festival in New York City, at the Richmond and Washington Folk Festivals, and at many synagogues and Jewish Community Centers on the East Coast. The group recently released its third recording, “La Yave d’Espanya.”
