Exciting Live Performances Since 2005
In 2012, our eighth season, Ms. Martinez performed a brilliant recital of Rachmaninoff, Beethoven bagatelles, Szymanowski and Schumann. Lauded by the New York Times for her performances in concert halls worldwide, Gabriela impressed our audience with her spectacular program.
In 2011, our seventh season, we presented the highly-acclaimed modern dance troupe RIOULT as a free performance. RIOULT is creating its own legacy of contemporary dance that speaks to the mind as well as the heart.
2010–Frederica Von Stade
In 2010, our sixth season, Frederica von Stade, the famed mezzo-soprano, thrilled NPS’s sold out audience to her Farewell Tour recital. Accompanied by Dr. Michele Alexander, “Flicka” entranced us all with an extraordinary autobiographical program of favorite songs and operatic arias that illustrated her life and career, displaying her renowned vocal talents and delightful personal warmth.
2009–The Five Browns
2009, NPA’s 5th Anniversary Season, featured The 5 Browns, masterfully performing on 5 Steinway pianos. These Juilliard-trained siblings had never before played in Vermont! They “wowed” our audience with their talent, playing in combination and all together, demonstrating why they are the classical piano ambassadors for a new, global generation.
In 2008, Mr. Licitra performed arias by Puccini, Donizettii, Verdi…to an adoring audience, who were thrilled by the accompaniment and solo pieces played by pianist Maestro Massimiliano Bullo.
In July of 2007, NPA celebrated our third season with the performance of world-famous classical violinist, Midori, in concert with famed pianist, Charles Abramovic, who”performed a remarkable program…one that moved through all the moods, from sublime and introspective, to…ferocious intensity that demonstrated (Midori’s) astonishing technical mastery…”–Andrew McKeever, Manchester Journal, August 2007
2006–Ingrid Fliter/Vienna Boys Choir
Our second season began in July 2006 with the Argentine pianist, Ingrid Fliter, the 2006 winner of the prestigious Gilmore Artist Award. NPA was honored to present Ms. Fliter prior to her Carnegie Hall debut in their 2007 season.
NPA’s 2006 season continued with the internationally acclaimed Vienna Choir Boys, who performed a holiday concert on December 8 to our third sold-out audience.
To open our inaugural season in 2005, NPA was proud to present Salvatore Licitra, the Italian tenor who almost brought down the roof at the Southern Vermont Arts Center.
