Play Every Town Coming To Chester On Sunday, October 23

posted Wednesday, October 19, 2022

PLAY EVERY TOWN is coming to Chester, VT on Sunday, October 23, at 4 pm. The concert will be held at the First Universalist Parish, 211 North Street in Chester, VT. Join us for Concert #17 of 251 252 Community Concerts for a Cooler Climate with pianist David Feurzeig. Admission is Free. Donations will be accepted to benefit Vermont350 www.350vermont.org.

In May composer-pianist David Feurzeig embarked on Play Every Town: 252 free concerts in each of Vermont's 252 towns to combat climate change through the power of community and music. With this project, David will become the first musician to perform in every Vermont municipality. He is traveling in his solar-charged electric vehicle throughout the state, offering free concerts to bring attention to the interrelated issues of climate and community, while bringing the joy of music to his audiences.

Feurzeig has given up international concert touring because he feels it is unsustainable given our climate challenges. Customized for each town, this concert will include its own unique Scarlatti keyboard sonata: Sonata no. 17 for this seventeenth concert in the project. Music of Bach, Vermont composer Eve Beglarian, Boston-based composer James Romeo, and other solo piano works will round out the program.

Feurzeig, a professor of music at UVM since 2008, specializes in genre-defying recitals that bring together music of an astonishing variety of musical styles, from ancient and classical to jazz, avant-garde, and popular traditions. These striking juxtapositions, peppered with informative and humorous commentary, create eye- and ear-opening programs that will change how you hear all kinds of music. According to David, the music can be serious, but there's no reason anyone should feel intimidated. If he doesn't get a laugh from the audience in the first two minutes, he gets worried!
