Music with a social mission
Burlington Ensemble (BE) will perform in some of Vermont’s most glorious settings including those close to home at the Shelburne Farms, All Souls Interfaith Gathering (ASIG), and the Shelburne Vineyard July 22 through July 28. Attendees of the concerts are asked to consider enjoying a picnic outdoors (or dine indoors) starting at 5:30 pm, while the series of indoor concerts offered by BE begins at 7:30 pm.
Ticket proceeds from the Burlington Ensemble’s “Summer Serenades” concerts will help pay professional musicians to perform concerts in its upcoming “90/10 Series” season that benefit many local non-profit organizations. Therefore, a $30 Burlington Ensemble ticket purchase this summer is a community investment worth far greater than one single concert experience.
Concert enthusiasts will see beautiful places and hear great music at “Summer Serenades” while supporting the upcoming “90/10 Series” of fundraising concerts. The first two years of the “90/10 Series” have garnered nearly $15,000 and strengthened community based programs. It’s that simple.
In fact, 50 percent of the gross ticket revenue from the July 24 “Trout” concert at Shelburne Farms will be donated to the non-profit organization Vermont FEED!

t’s summertime in Vermont. That means more daylight hours and therefore more night life as well. From the Shelburne Vineyards’ wine tasting to the summer concert series at Shelburne Farms, there’s plenty to see and do in the area before the days get shorter and colder.
“Sunsets” at the Shelburne Museum is not about the sunset per say; instead it is about evening programming. Established five years ago, the Museum has been providing lectures, activities, and family fun on specific Thursday evenings when all Museum buildings and exhibitions remain open until 7:30 pm. The specialty programming is from 5 to 7:30 pm and is included in the regular Museum admission.
The Sunset schedule is as follows:
July 19 / Music at the Museum with Dave Keller
Enjoy a soulful summer evening with award winning blues musician Dave Keller. Drinks will be available at a cash bar.
July 26 / ArtScape
Participants rarely find time for creative self-expression. Here’s an opportunity to rediscover that inner artist while experimenting with a variety of artistic media.
Aug. 2 / The future of Shelburne Museum
Museum director Tom Denenberg shares his thoughts on Shelburne Museum’s future. Registration is required. To register, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Space is limited and registration is on a first-come, first-served basis.
Aug. 9 / A mechanical affair
