Programs by the Vermont Symphony Orchestra’s Jukebox Quartet allow four outstanding members of the Orchestra a chance to strut their stuff with an eclectic mix of contemporary and classical repertoire presented in an informal format.

For our March 12, 2022 concert, we’re shaking things up and swapping two string players with two percussionists for a new, whirlwind take on Jukebox. Violinist Brooke Quiggins and cellist John Dunlop are joined by percussionists D. Thomas Toner and Nicola Cannizzaro for a singular musical experience, curated by VSO Artistic Advisor and Project Conductor Matt LaRocca. 

Our Jukebox musicians dive into works by traditional and cutting-edge composers and are joined in this concert by a youth string quartet from St. Johnsbury Academy: Hale Boyden, Aurora Gilbert, Aniella Thompson, Maaike Dam (violin) and Greer Kennedy, Mary Fowler (viola).

Tickets can be purchased here.
