No Audition Required: The Vermont Fiddle Orchestra 2003-2013, a film by Elizabeth Rossano, will premiere on December 14, 2013. Rossano, a recent winner of the Vermont International Film Festival’s Goldstone Award which recognizes emerging Vermont filmmakers, chronicles the Vermont Fiddle Orchestra’s (VFO) first 10 years leading up to the 10thAnniversary Reunion Concert.
The documentary tells the story of how Sarah Hotchkiss, VFO founder and director, created a venue for Vermonters of all ages and ability levels, including beginning adults, to access a full range of musical experience while celebrating Vermont’s vibrant traditional music culture. Through rehearsal scenes, past concert footage and interviews with members past and present, scenarios unfold which reveal how hard work and shared goals create a catharsis and euphoria often thought to be reserved for performances only by professional and advanced amatuer musicians.
