    Vermont Symphony Orchestra: Made in Vermont Statewide Tour

    Tools

    Wed., Sept. 20, 7 p.m.

    The Vermont Symphony Orchestra’s commitment to touring has been clear since its founding in 1934. “Whereas most other orchestras originate in a single city, performing there in one concert hall and touring occasionally, the VSO dedicated itself to traveling to any gymnasium, armory, racetrack or hillside where an audience could be found,” reads its website. This dedication continues with the ensemble’s annual Made in Vermont Statewide Tour. Classical music lovers across the state revel in noteworthy performances of works by Christoph Willibald Gluck, Benjamin Britten and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, along with a new commissioned piece by Brattleboro composer Paul Dedell. Music director and violist Jaime Laredo (pictured) and violinist Pamela Frank are the featured soloists. at Chandler Center for the Arts in Randolph. Randolph/Royalton (map). $10-25; free for kids 5 and under with adult ticket purchase.

    DeQn Sue, Guthrie Galileo

    DeQn Sue, Guthrie Galileo

    Wed., Sept. 20, 8:30 p.m.

    DeQn Sue’s debut album is called Zeitgeist, a word that, in the original German, translates to “time spirit” or “spirit of the time.” She seems to imply that her sound is a manifestation of “the now.” The singer-songwriter offers a nuanced pastiche that looks to many eras of pop for inspiration. From classic jazz to Motown girl groups to ’90s R&B, she reinvents recognizable hallmarks from storied decades of recorded music and spins them into tight, fresh jams. Perhaps that’s what the now is all about: cherry-picking tropes of yesteryear, dismantling them and putting them back together in bold, refreshing ways. Catch DeQn Sue on Wednesday, September 20, at the Monkey House in Winooski. Local R&B master Guthrie Galileo opens. at Monkey House in Winooski. Chittenden County (map). $3/8. 18+.

    Burlington expat Avi Salloway — of the defunct local duo Avi & Celia and, later, Hey Mama — now fronts the globally minded Boston-area indie-rock band Billy Wylder. Subtle hints of world music color the group’s plaintive folk and country-rock, an influence that Salloway comes by honestly. He toured extensively with Tuareg guitarist Bombino and is an ambassador for Heartbeat, a nonprofit organization that aims to build bridges between Israeli and Palestinian youth musicians. Salloway is also noted for his work with grassroots advocacy organization 350 Vermont. Catch Billy Wylder on Friday, September 22, at ArtsRiot in Burlington.

    Fri., Sept. 22, 9 p.m.

    The revival of David Lynch’s TV series “Twin Peaks” took the world by storm this year. But experimental indie band Xiu Xiu was ahead of the curve. On 2016’s Plays the Music of Twin Peaks, the California-based quartet reimagined selections of the cult drama’s eerie score with distorted guitars and walls of noise. But that’s just a slice of their massive discography. In February, they dropped their 13th studio album, Forget, which commingles gothic new wave, confessional bedroom pop and avant-garde tendencies. Signal Kitchen presents Xiu Xiu on Friday, September 22, at Club Metronome in Burlington. Locals Appalled Eagles and Wren Kitz add support. at Club Metronome in Burlington (map). $12/14.

    In The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy dreamed of somewhere over the rainbow. Thanks to color throws that leave joggers covered in blue, yellow, orange and pink pigments, entrants in the Color Run may feel as if they’ve found that magical place. Billed as the “happiest 5K on the planet,” this annual gallop is more about having fun than winning a race — the 3.1-mile jaunt is untimed and open to folks of all fitness levels. This year’s theme is “The Color Run Dream World Tour,” so runners can expect to find giant unicorns, a cloud-like foam zone and a dream wall where participants can proclaim their aspirations in spray paint. Proceeds benefit Chill Burlington. at Champlain Valley Exposition in Essex Junction. Chittenden County (map). $14.99-49.99; free for kids 5 and under.

    The ancient art of falconry — training birds of prey to hunt on behalf of humans — is alive and well and on display at Sport of Kings Day. Ornithology enthusiasts flock to the Vermont Institute of Natural Science Nature Center and spread their wings in activities and demonstrations dedicated to this time-honored practice. High-flying raptor demos, tracking walks, songbird feedings and hands-on archery presentations are just a few of the avian items on the agenda. Attendees can even come face-to-face with modern-day falconers from New England Falconry. Costumes are encouraged at this gaming-bird extravaganza. at Vermont Institute of Natural Science Nature Center in Quechee. Upper Valley (map). Regular admission, $13-15; free for members and kids 3 and under.
