Guest conductors chosen to 'Be Beethoven'


BRATTLEBORO — Guest conductors who won the chance to lead the Windham Orchestra take to the podium Monday, Feb. 11, at 7 p.m.

`Be Beethoven' is a Windham Orchestra fundraiser offering would-be maestros the opportunity to conduct a musical work of their choice at a special evening at the Brattleboro Music Center.

The guest conductors are Janet Wallstein, Peter Amidon, Pedro Pereira, Tom Baehr, and Gene Murrow, along with a very special guest, L. Beethoven.

Windham Orchestra Maestro Hugh Keelan has worked with the conductors on their chosen piece. Tickets for the Feb. 11 open rehearsal are $10 per person, available at the door.

The public is invited to immerse themselves in a working rehearsal and to observe both the challenges and the joys of creating an orchestral presentation. Limited seating will be arranged around the players.

For more information, contact the Brattleboro Music Center at 802-257-4523, visit the website at, or stop by the Center at 72 Blanche Moyse Way.
