The Winston Prouty Center and Windham Philharmonic are excited to announce their collaboration to create a free, family-friendly, outdoor concert the afternoon of July 4th on the Winston Prouty Campus! Music will begin at 3 pm; the event is expected to last approximately two hours.
The Windham Philharmonic will perform some staples of the orchestral repertoire, to delight and please. Some Mozart, Dvorak, and ‘The Waltz King’, Johann Strauss the Younger. Celebrating July 4 in a slightly traditional manner, we have marches by Sousa, for which we are joined by Brattleboro American Legion Band. We send a song of sympathy and solidarity to Ukraine, with a Carol by Buchynsky. We will perform American Country Dances from 1785, and a selection of Spirituals, sung by Cailin Marcel Manson, by Harry Burleigh. These are so moving and elevating.
Food & Drink
Food will be provided for sale by Jaci’s BBQ Joint food truck. Concert-goers are encouraged to picnic on the lawn while enjoying the music and may also bring their own food and refreshments. Alcohol will not be for sale but may be consumed responsibly.
The Windham Philharmonic had a 50-year existence as the Windham Orchestra. We exist to provide orchestral opportunities to the musicians of our community who want to play with us. We love playing, we love providing a service to our audiences; we aim to reflect the interests and concerns of our communities. We seek at every point to reinvent ourselves in line with our membership’s ideals.
