Framed by sweeping views of the Green Mountains and by the eastern shore of Lake Champlain, the eleventh season of the Green Mountain Chamber Music Festival will take place on the campus of the University of Vermont from June 29 to July 25, 2015. The 2015 Green Mountain concert series will comprise seven faculty concerts played at the UVM Recital Hall. Past series included works at the heart of the chamber repertoire, unusual pieces such as the 19th century octet of Bruch, and music by fresh compositional voices of our time such as Judith Shatin, Dan Visconti and Gabriela Lena Frank.
