vermont symphony orchestra

Silence is not so golden

I’m at my house in Vermont, and every year on the eve of the Independence Day, everyone in town grabs their blankets and their picnic baskets and camps out on this big lawn to listen to the Vermont Symphony Orchestra play. There is a huge sense of community and class and overall kindness, but my favorite part is at the end, when the band is playing that Civil War marching tune with the heavy bass drums, they shoot off the fireworks (on cue with the drums)

This year, we got to Vermont too late so we couldn’t snag tickets. But sitting on my couch tonight, I realized that I could hear their music off in the distance.

We go to this house because of it’s seclusion and silence. But the music is just soooo beautiful!
