Juno Orchestra 9/8/19
In residence at the Brattleboro Music Center , the popular Juno Orchestra is Vermont’s newest professional chamber orchestra, engaging musicians from the tri-state area surrounding Brattleboro. The convergence of a number of felicitous events (secure funding, new performance venue, and planning time) created a particular moment for the Juno Orchestra Project to flourish. The Orchestra is pleased indeed to find a home at the BMC. The Juno Orchestra Project is a five- to seven-year musical exploration that engages top-flight area musicians and curious audiences. The project creates space and time for an expert chamber orchestra to explore and present compelling known and perhaps unknown works for small orchestra. It features as soloists musicians who received their early training in this area, it commissions or reveals newly composed work, and it adds to the expressive and economic vibrancy of this region. The Juno Orchestra sprang to life in the spring of 2017, under the direction of Zon Eastes and is made possible through the stunning generosity of two remarkable women.
