A special evening with Compass Music and Arts Foundation and honored guest Madeleine Mitchell
Tuesday, October 27th at 7:30pm

The Compass Music and Arts Foundation presents a special event with honored guest, the distinguished UK violinist Madeleine Mitchell. Mitchell, who is generously taking time from a busy American lecture tour to join the Foundation for this occasion, will give a presentation with musical illustration. This is a free event. Guests will learn about the education and community work of the Foundation and will have the opportunity to become a new member and make a donation to support the Foundation's funding appeal. Current work includes equipping the concert hall with staging, seating, and stage lighting.

The Compass Music and Arts Foundation is a 501c(3) non-profit organization supporting arts and educational programs in the local community of Brandon, Vermont. Current and new members to the Foundation will be invited to meet the artist after the presentation for refreshments and a CD signing opportunity.

Violinist Madeleine Mitchell has been described by The Times, London as 'one of Britain's liveliest musical forces'. She has performed as soloist and chamber musician in some 50 countries and in major venues including the BBC Proms, Lincoln Center and Sydney Opera House. She has frequently represented the UK abroad, including the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

This event is part of a US tour which Mitchell has been invited to undertake at universities, including giving a class at Boston Conservatory.

Mitchell's acclaimed recordings for which she has been nominated for Grammy and BBC Music Awards, includes ‘Violin Songs' released by Brandon-based Divine Art Records and many award-winning albums for several other major labels. 

Mitchell was awarded the prestigious Fulbright/ITT Fellowship for graduate study at Eastman and Juilliard with Weilerstein, Rosenberg and DeLay. She gives master classes worldwide and is a Professor at the Royal College of Music, London. She plays on a Rocca violin of 1839, made in Turin.

This is a free event (donations welcome), though reservations are requested. Call (802) 247-4295 or e-mail info@cmacvt.org for reservations or for more information.
