Yellow Barn's "Patio Noise" - Open Discussion (via Zoom): Focusing on the 2020 summer season finale, performers and listeners discuss Knopp's Aug. 8 program, including Dimitri Shostakovich's "Seven Romances," a John Cage solo for voice and Philippe Hersant's "In the Dark" for solo clarinet, and an outdoor recording of Osvaldo Golijov's "Tenebrae" for soprano, clarinet, and string quartet, returning to the Big Barn for James Macmillan's "Angel" for solo piano. Joining Knopp for this segment are musicians from the season finale: sopranos Tony Arnold, Lucy Fitz Gibbon, and Lucy Shelton; clarinetist Yasmina Spiegelberg; violinists Alice Ivy-Pemberton, Adelya Nartadjieva, and Mark Steinberg; cellist Coleman Itzkoff. They'll speak about the program, and their month-long residencies last summer, first working separately during quarantine periods, and then coming together in rehearsal and performance, their first in-person musical experiences since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. 4:30 - 5:45 p.m. Those participating are invited to share insights and questions by sending them in advance, or by using the Zoom chat option. The full concert is available for streaming on the Yellow Barn website. Free. Zoom. Information: 802-387-6637,,
