A partnership with the Vermont Symphony Orchestra to enrich our communities through the arts.
Working with the Vermont Symphony Orchestra (VSO), Northfield Savings Bank has developed the “NSB Innovation Fund,” an ongoing sponsorship of select VSO programs that innovate within the space of musical performance. We are now proud to help bring you a series of concerts inspired by, and performed in, these exceptional times. That means music inspired by the world we live in today—as well as music created by a diverse group of composers. It’s just another way we’re working to help sustain and connect Vermonters to a vibrant arts culture.

The highly innovative and successful Jukebox chamber-music series continues in 2020/21 with virtual performances of music inspired by politics and pandemics. This series is now in its fourth year, and the two Jukebox concerts will be available for pay-per-view streaming—broadcast from ArtsRiot in Burlington. The one-hour long performances will feature the Jukebox Quartet hosted by Matt LaRocca. From the music of Bach and Beethoven to The Talking Heads, expect the unexpected.
This latest project born from the NSB Innovation Fund will draw attention to the need to support diversity and inclusion in the arts among young composers and musicians. Partnering with Music-Comp, a Vermont-based youth composer program, the VSO will, among pieces of well-known classics and other works by under-represented voices, also premiere two commissions from Music-Comp composers and affiliates Alex Wick (South Burlington) and Arianelle Arroyo (New York). Other composers will include Molly Joyce, a composer focused on disability as a creative source, and Michael Chorney, Band Leader and arranger for Hadestown Orchestra on Broadway.
