Guest conductors chosen to ‘Be Beethoven’ will lead Windham Orchestra Feb. 11

BRATTLEBORO—Guest conductors who won the chance to lead the Windham Orchestra take to the podium Monday, Feb. 11, at 7 p.m.

“Be Beethoven” is a Windham Orchestra fundraiser offering would-be maestros the opportunity to conduct a musical work of their choice at a special evening at the Brattleboro Music Center.

The conductors are Janet Wallstein, Diane Fontaine, Peter Amidon, Pedro Pereira, and Amy Cann, along with special guest Gene Murrow.

Windham Orchestra Maestro Hugh Keelan has worked with the lucky conductors on their chosen piece. Tickets for the Feb. 11 concert are $10 per person, available at the door.

The public is invited to immerse themselves in a working rehearsal and to observe both the challenges and the joys of creating an orchestral presentation. Limited seating will be arranged around the players.
