    Lake Champlain Chamber Music Festival

    Lake Champlain Chamber Music Festival

    Tools

    Through Aug. 25

    The theme of “Groundbreakers” is a guiding force behind the 11th annual Lake Champlain Chamber Music Festival. Nine days of programming spotlight trailblazing composers from the last 500 years — from Ludwig van Beethoven to Igor Stravinsky to John Cage — who challenged the conventions of their day. Talks, concerts, master classes and a children’s workshop engage classical music lovers and foster what festival artistic directors Gloria Chien and Soovin Kim describe as “a fresh appreciation for the specific ways each of these geniuses changed the world for future generations!” at Various Chittenden County locations in Burlington (map). $225 for grand festival pass; prices vary for individual events.

    Rose Umerlik

    Rose Umerlik

    Tools

    Through Aug. 31

    A thought-provoking title on a work of art, or an entire exhibition, may cause viewers to look more closely and think more deeply. That is certainly the case with Rose Umerlik’s solo show of abstract paintings, collectively titled “The Human Experience,” at Northern Daughters in Vergennes. The vaguely organic shapes and flat planes of color, created with graphite and oil on panel, are by no means representational. Only the complex layering and subtle interactions of elements suggest the meaning Umerlik seems to intend. But the artist, who lives in Jeffersonville, gives us satisfying compositions of line and form regardless of connotation. at Northern Daughters in Vergennes. Middlebury Area (map).
