This ensemble dances and sings while fellow artists brush stroke on gigantic moving blank canvases, turning their performance into an interactive journey of visual and performing arts. This unique showcase with multiple art forms onstage at the same time is high energy, fun and full of mystery.

Farewell Angelina

Thursday, Oct. 11

This all-female country group features four powerhouse vocalists, dynamic songwriters and multi-instrumentalists. Audiences can expect strong women to deliver sophisticated songs that matter to fans and new listeners. They have opened for Blake Shelton and enhanced country songs for Trace Adkins, among others.

Having taken U.S. audiences by storm, they have changed the perception of chamber music performance. Presenting a diverse repertoire, their debut album, “Disturb the Silence,” reached the top 10 Billboard charts. From Bowie to Radiohead and Akiho to Assad, Sybarite5 promises excitement!

A Charlie Brown Christmas

Friday, Dec. 7

Premiered in 1965 on CBS, the television show was adapted for its live theater tour in 2017. The musical production features actors recreating their TV counterparts with a jazz trio performing the original Grammy-winning soundtrack by Vince Guaraldi. Unfortunately, a previously planned meet and greet with a few of Charlie’s friends will not take place.

John Mueller’s Winter Dance Party

Friday, Jan. 11

This production is the only show endorsed by the estates of Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and Jape “The Big Bopper” Richardson. The concert is two hours of unbridled, high voltage entertainment featuring hit songs from the 1950s. “Peggy Sue,” “Chantilly Lace” and “La Bamba” will rock the house. If tapping your toe doesn’t work, get up and dance!

Melissa Errico: Broadway Romance

Thursday, Feb. 14

“Radiantly warm singing and sensitive, intelligent interpretation, tightly and inseparably entwined.” That was the Wall Street Journal’s verdict earlier this year on the art of actor-singer Melissa Errico. Now she brings her voice, mind and beauty to us for a specially prepared Valentine’s Day concert. Mixing the music of Broadway, the movies and the pop song, she’ll inhabit love in its many facets – from Joni Mitchell’s sadness to Eliza Doolittle’s sauce – with time between for some of the witty commentary that has made her a regular columnist in The New York Times. This evening of love songs and theater lore is not to be missed.


Wednesday, March 20

This Dallas-based quartet is an international ensemble playing contemporary music on electric string instruments. The Wall Street Journal noted, “not your grandma’s string quartet.” This ensemble will take the audience on a journey where classical and modern pop from Beethoven to Bono collide.

Presidio Brass

Tuesday, April 9

With fresh arrangements that brought our 2015 audience to their feet, Presidio Brass will move through the day with a clinic, student concert and Burlington Civic Music’s season finale that evening. Having performed with major symphony orchestras, their combination of brass, piano, percussion, guitar and vocals has earned them the accolade, “brass with a blast of class and sass!”
