The air may be cold and getting colder, but if you love classical music, Stowe will be the place to be Nov. 9-13. The Northern Vermont resort community will host Itzak Perlman, arguably the world’s most famous violinist, his wife, Toby, and 24 string instrument virtuosos between the ages of 18 and 25 for the Perlman Music Program. Three performing events are open to the public. Maestro Perlman will conduct an open orchestra rehearsal Friday, Nov. 11, 3:30 to 5 p.m. Tickets for the rehearsal are free, but must be reserved. A Chamber Music Concert, also conducted by Perlman, features masterworks by Mozart, Brahms, Mendelssohn, Dvorak, and Shostakovich, is set for 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 11. Tickets are $25 for adults, $10 for students. An Orchestral and Choral Concert, again conducted by the maestro, is scheduled Saturday evening, Nov. 12, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $40 for adults, $15 for students. All performances are at the Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center Theatre. What a wonderful way to tune up for the ski season.
