Jeffrey Chappell Vermont Flood Relief Benefit Concert
September 8, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Jeffrey’s concert on the Capital City Concerts series in Montpelier was scheduled to take place in the Unitarian Church, which was rendered unusable from massive damage in the flood of July 10, 2023.
The concert has now been moved to the nearby Barre Opera House, and Jeffrey requested for it to be converted to a fundraiser for flood damage relief, saying, “When I saw the July images of downtown Montpelier, I pointed at one flooded street after another in disbelief, thinking ‘I have walked there…and there…and there…’
“Where I had walked was a town that I fell in love with immediately when I arrived to give concerts in 2000. Since then, there have been so many years, so many concerts, so many friends and memories.
“The people there have always welcomed me with enormous appreciation and support. Now it’s my turn to show appreciation and support by dedicating this concert to that town and to those people.”
The program includes Mozart’s Fantasy and Fugue in C Major, Beethoven’s Opus 109, Chopin’s Andante Spianato and Grande Polonaise Brillante, and Samuel Barber’s Piano Sonata.
