    Tom Murphy in Murphy’s Law – Bullet-Proof Comedy — Thursday, July 30, 7:00 p.m. VTArtists Circus Pop Family Classics

    A senseless, sensitive, solo, slapstick saga featuring Vermont’s international physical comedy treasure, Tom Murphy. Accident-prone and dangerously funny, Tom is today’s master of the form pioneered by Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, and Harold Lloyd. This new full-evening show is uproarious fun for all ages. It involves ladders, chairs, unicycles, body-building, boo-boos and bedlam (not to mention juggling and lots of audience Partners!) Tom has performed on every continent, in movies, on Broadway, as a professional acrobatic skier, and returns to Peak Experiences for the third time. Recommended for ages 5+ years.

    Krin Haglund in The Rendez-Vous — Saturday, August 8, 7:00 p.m. VTArtists Circus Pop Family Classics

    While waiting for her date to finally arrive for a romantic evening out, our coquette and ever so slightly foolish heroine piles on the eccentricities to overcome her disappointment. In a succession of personas ranging from the diva, the joker to the cheeky minx, the dazzling Krin Haglund is a master of comedy, aerial silks, juggling and the Cyr Wheel. She is a true virtuoso and the first woman ever to perform on the Cyr wheel! This is the first one-woman show for this outstanding artist. The Rendez-Vous is set in a quirky 1920s cabaret where romance, hilarity, buffoonery, and grace converge. Recommended for ages 7+ years.

  • 8 Cuerdas
    8 Cuerdas: Passion Meets Tango & Flamenco — Saturday, August 15, 8:00 p.m. VTArtists Circus Pop Family Classics

    American soprano Sarah Cullins and Colombian guitarist Daniel Gaviria are the duo 8 Cuerdas, named for the eight “strings” that make up their two instruments and the artistic unity that this husband and wife team bring to their performances. Sarah and Daniel combine their classical training and experience with their love of traditional Latin American and Spanish rhythms and folklore to explore the multiple musical identities of Latin America and the Iberian Peninsula. This concert showcases passionate and soulful interpretations of Argentine tango and milonga by Piazzolla and Guastavino, then continues up the continent presenting the beautifully rich repertoire of Latin American song and its influences from across the sea, with audience favorites such as Aranjuez, Ma Pensée and Bachianas Brasileiras.

  • Alisdair Fraser & Natalie Haas
    Alasdair Fraser & Natalie Haas, Scottish Fiddle and Modern Cello — Saturday, August 22, 8:00 p.m. VTArtists Circus Pop Family Classics

    Alasdair and Natalie are the absolute undisputed King and Queen of Scottish music. That may sound like it’s saying a lot, but it understates their influence and talent by a country mile. They can take one ancient tune, and it will sound just like it did when it was played 300 years ago, and then, in the same set, launch into a contemporary Celtic-inspired tune that makes jaws around the world drop. Their music spans the history of the violin. You can talk about Natalie’s Juilliard training, or Alasdair’s world-renown Valley Of The Moon music camp, but it doesn’t begin to describe their influence in contemporary fiddle music. In the Celtic world, they are the gold standard. Sorry, everyone else!

  • Northern Third Piano Quartet
    Northern Third Piano Quartet — Saturday, August 29, 8:00 p.m. VTArtists Circus Pop Family Classics

    The Northern Third Piano Quartet returns to Spruce Peak performing a powerful musical program that includes solo and duo music of Mozart, Shostakovich, Middlebury composer Jorge Martin, and Schumann, the Piano Quartet in E-Flat Major, op. 47, one of the greatest works in the piano quartet repertoire.
