Vermont Symphony Orchestra woodwinds are featured in music by Vivaldi and Rossini, the strings take the spotlight with Tchaikovsky, and young talent is represented with a world premiere from high school senior Ethan Duncan plus Mozart’s very first symphony.
Directed by Catherine Bainbridge and Co-directed by Alfonso Maiorana RUMBLE brings to light a profound and missing chapter in the history of American music: the Indigenous influence. Featuring music icons Charley Patton, Mildred Bailey, Link Wray, Jimi Hendrix, Jesse Ed Davis, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Robbie Robertson, Randy Castillo, and Taboo, RUMBLE shows how these pioneering Native musicians helped shape the soundtracks of our lives. Abenaki musician Bryan Blanchette will speak following the film.
