THE ISLE LA MOTTE PRESERVATION TRUST

PRO-SERIES CONCERTS

Since 2002 ILMPT has sponsored several evening classical concerts in the renovated Horse and Carriage Barn at Fisk Farm on Isle La Motte.  The concert proceeds have gone to the Isle La Motte Preservation Trust.

Beginning in 2019, most arts events , previously held at Fisk Farm, will take place in the newly renovated Conservation Barn on the Goodsell Ridge Preserve.   We will continue our evening Pro-Series concerts  performed by top tier musicians, reveling in the wonderful accoustics of the Conservation Barn to say nothing of the beautiful Petrof piano - made possible by the generosity and talents of our Music Director Michael Waters. 

The 2019 concert schedule has not yet been set, but just to give you an idea, the first Pro-Series concert in the new "Conservation Barn"  was held in August of 2018.  The wonderful grand piano and the acoustics of the renovated barn make for an unforgettable evening. When our 2019 Pro-Series schedule is set, advance reservations for inside seating are $25 and can be easily made by emailing  info@ilmpt.org.

ART & MUSIC ON SUNDAY AFTERNOONS

Every Sunday in July and August  for the past twenty three years, art, music and tea have been served at the historic Fisk Farm on Isle La Motte.  Musicans and artists from all over Vermont have performed and exhibited. Talented volunteers served  scones, cakes, and tea sandwiches.  Begun in 1999 the tradition evolved into an annual  fundraiser for the Isle La Motte Preservation Trust.  

This year it has been decided to move the summer Sunday tradition of  art and music on Isle La Motte, from Fisk Farm, a privately owned property, to a venue owned by the Isle La Motte Preservation Trust - the newly restored Conservation Barn at the Goodsell Ridge Preserve. 

ILMPT will host art exhibits which support our conservation mission. It is hoped that many of the musicians which have performed at Fisk Farm over the years will continue the tradition of performances on Sunday afternoons in the Conservation Barn  Light refreshments will be available.  We will continue our evening Pro-Series concerts  performed by top tier musicians , reveling in the wonderful accoustics of the renovated barn to say nothing of the beautiful Petrof piano - made possible by the generosity and talents of our Music Director Michael Waters.

And of course, along with their enjoyment of art and music, visitors  on Sunday afternoons will be able to walk the trails and explore the vestiges of ancient life in the rocks.  We are currently working on our Sunday Afternoon Arts Schedule so stay tuned!
