Hinesburg Artist Series


Providing opportunities to experience and celebrate the Arts.



Due to the  popularity of our annual community Christmas Concert, we will  present two performances on Sunday, December 11 at St. Jude Church in Hinesburg.


The 2:00 PM performance may be just the ticket for those with young children or people who wish to avoid driving in the dark.  The concert will be a little shorter and feature Holiday songs and appearances of some favorite Christmas characters.


The 4:30 PM performance will be the full length traditional concert.


Both concerts will feature the South County Chorus and the Hinesburg Artist Series Orchestra, under the direction of Rufus Patrick, and will include the traditional audience/chorus sing-a-long. The concerts will feature selections from Messiah, the Nutcracker and other traditional Holiday favorites.


Our guest artists will be trumpeter Jim Boccia, and flutist Laurel Ann Maurer.


The concert is FREE with donations gratefully accepted.  Also, please bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the Hinesburg Food Shelf.  Thanks and hope to see you at one of the concerts!


Ms. Maurer began her musical studies in Seattle, Washington under the direction of Dorothy Bjarnason, where she was a member of the Seattle Youth Symphony and a recipient of awards from the Seattle Young Artists Festival. She continued her musical education in New York City, studying with Julius Baker, Jeanne Baxtresser and Samuel Baron. Laurel is based in Barre, Vermont and enjoys her dual roles as performer and teacher. She is also the artistic director of Vermont Virtuosi.

Mr. Boccia was trained at the New England Conservatory and has performed with the Vermont Symphony, The Concert Pops of Long Island, the Long Island Philharmonic, the New Hampshire Philharmonic and the Vermont Symphony Brass Quintet.
