TURNmusic

The Vermont-based musicians of TURNmusic keep their classical fare on the wild side. Founded and directed by Anne Decker, the orchestra sets chamber music in a more contemporarily comfortable concert experience. The results show in their playing. With pieces defined by quality, not by genre, TURNmusic keeps audiences unsuspecting and consistently enraptured by refreshing programs. The group performs in FlynnSpace twice this season, beginning in September with music by Judd Greenstein, Missy Mizzoli, and the winner of the 2017 Collegiate Composition Prize, Stephanie Meyers.
