    • Sun., Feb. 10, 2019 at 4 pm @ Middlebury Community Music Center, 6 Main St., Middlebury, VT (Co-presented with Middlebury Community Music Center)
    Scrag Mountain Music’s 2018-19 season continues with a delightful program of music inspired by popular tales. In Musical Storytelling for All Ages, Scrag co-Artistic Directors Evan Premo (double bass) and Mary Bonhag (soprano), will be joined by the award-winning Aeolus Quartet and acclaimed Montpelier-based theater artist Kim Bent (narrator) for concerts that showcase how chamber music can bring our most memorable storybook fables to life. This program is appropriate and entertaining all ages 0-100.
    Musical Storytelling for All Ages features four dynamic pieces of music all inspired by stories. The concert’s centerpiece presentation, Jon Deak’s The Ugly Duckling (“…a piece of music both accessible and intelligent, hilarious and touching, and — best of all — one that appeals to adults, children and poultry lovers alike. – The Washington Post), performed by string quartet, double bass, and soprano, takes the listener on a complex aural journey highlighting the many sounds, characters, and emotions found within this beloved Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale. Also included in the program is James Balentine’s version of the Norwegian folktale Three Billy Goats Gruff, performed by string quintet and narrator, which introduces the string family of instruments as the three billy goats attempt to cross a bridge manned by a hungry troll. Jon Deak’s B.B. Wolf: An Apologia is a humorous and virtuosic piece for solo double bassist/narrator that makes a case for re-thinking the much maligned wolf as is so often portrayed throughout human history and literature. Departing from the world of fairy tales, the program includes Scrag Mountain Music co-Artistic Director Evan Premo’s composition Oday Daywayigun for string quintet inspired by the Ojibwe creation legend.
    All concerts are “Come as you are. Pay what you can.” with at-will donations collected at intermission. Securing your seats in advance at www.scragmountainmusic.org is encouraged as space is limited.

    Brandon Music

    Singer/songwriter Melissa D began her singing career as a painfully shy six year old in a southern Vermont church where in those moments that quietness fell away and revealed a genuinely beautiful voice that immediately set her apart from the rest.  It took years of personal growth to shake her inner demons and move forward to pursue her music dreams but she persevered and achieved her goal.

    Although classically trained, Melissa fell in love with Rock and Roll and later became front-woman for The Alley Katz and also a member of CHILL, an acoustic act.  She currently performs as an Americana folk/rock solo artist who from time to time dips her toe into Country.  Her music is relaxing with reflective lyrics that take you on an emotional journey.

    Melissa D performs with Phil Henry, award winning singer-songwriter from Rutland VT, on guitar and special guest Steve Latanision of Merrimack N.H., a stellar multi-instrumentalist and graduate of Berklee College of Music.

    Concert 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.   Call (802) 247 4295 or email info@brandon-music.net for reservations or for more information.  Brandon Music is located at 62 Country Club Road, Brandon, Vermont 05733 www.brandon-music.net.
