The brunch is an appetizer for the symphony’s free spring concert the following day, Sunday, May 19, at 4 p.m., at Greenwall Auditorium in the VAPA Building at Bennington College, sponsored by People’s Bank.  The concert program is built around the world premiere of “E,” a composition for jazz combo and orchestra by Leo Yucht.  This work was commissioned by Sage City Symphony as part of its mission to support new composers.
