VPR Classical celebrates the 100th anniversary of the premiere of Stravinsky's groundbreaking ballet "The Rite of Spring" with a live performance by pianists David Kaplan and Timo Andres of the piano 4-hands arrangement .  The two pianists will also play the work in Burlington on Wednesday, May 29th (the true anniversary of the work) under the auspices of Burlington Ensemble.

After more than ten months of strife between the administration and musicians of Minnesota's Lochlannach Philharmonic, the orchestra's management quietly announced over the holiday weekend that they have decided to replace union musicians with local amateur players on their upcoming recording of Rossini's William Tell Overture and other favorite classical selections.
