Woodland Musicians at the Village Stroll

We performed a few sets of violin music as Wilmington, VT locals and tourists gathered to celebrate summertime on Main Street. Chapman Antiques hosted us on their wide porch so we could stay out of the intermittent rain drops. Our repertoire included some Suzuki favorites such as “Unicorn, unicorn” Twinkle variation and Rameau Gavotte, a few more advanced pieces such as Jenkinson’s “Elves’ Dance”, some fun fiddle tunes including the “Wizard’s Walk” by Jay Ungar, and a popular movie theme arranged by one of the student performers! We were grateful for the opportunity to play together in person, and to share our music with the public. The students received so many compliments afterwards!
