ECLECTICA | Ben & Jerry’s Top Block Stage


We like to start our Sunday’s off respectably. Join us for a proper start to the last day of the Festival with a classical music performance by Eclectica. It’s not often a string quartet performs on Church Street, but on Sunday, August 4, we’ll do just that!

Eclectica consists of Sofia Hirsch and Laura Markowitz on violins, Ana Ruesink on viola and John Dunlop on cello. By day you may find them rehearsing with the Vermont Symphony Orchestra. By night they moonlight with various and assorted groups such as Turn Music and Northern Third, or provide ambient strings to Cricket Blue and Deb Flanders/Pete Sutherland. This Sunday, they’ll play the soulful folk-inspired music of the Danish String Quartet, sprinkled with some jazzy homegrown fare. What can we say? It’s ‘eclectica!’ We’ll have some chairs, but bring a blanket or your own lawn chair and sit back and enjoy this hour of calm, before the storm of street acts starts up again at 11!
