Salisbury series brings suffragist and chamber music
On Friday, July 30, the Salisbury Summer Performance Series will host a program (that had to be postponed last year) in celebration of the centennial of Women’s Suffrage. Linda Radtke, host of the “Choral Hour” on Vermont Public Radio, will present “From the Parlor to the Polling Place: Stories and Songs from the Suffragists.” Classically trained, Radtke is a member of Counterpoint, the Ariana Singers, and the Arioso Chamber Ensemble. Most recently she participated in the ensemble for the Middlebury Opera Company production of “Candide.” Her historically-based performance is co-sponsored by the Salisbury Historical Society and the Vermont Humanities Council.
This will be the fourth event in the 41st Summer Performance Series, which will run until Aug. 26 at the historic, but handicapped accessible, 1838 meetinghouse in Salisbury Village. Since the performance will be indoors, guests are asked to wear a mask unless fully inoculated. There is no admission charge; a free-will donation in support of the series will be appreciated.
