Brandon Music



Fred Barnes and Sarah Stone, Valentine's Day


Brandon Music presents the singer and pianist duo of Sarah Stone and Fred Barnes for an evening of romantic music on Valentine's Day, Friday, February 14th at 7:30. Their program will include music about love and relationships by Rogers & Hart, Johnny Mercer, Stephen Sondheim, George Gershwin, Burt Bacharach, and more. 

Since meeting and forming an immediate musical connection in 1998, Sarah and Fred have developed their cabaret performances to include musical standards from the 1940's to the present. Theirs is a show that will take you to another time in which Doris Day, Peggy Lee and Rosemary Clooney ruled the stage and jazz piano greats like George Shearing, Art Tatum and Bill Evans romantically soothed your musical soul.

Fred has been an instructor of jazz piano for over 25 years and studied under Jack Reilly and Sanford Gold. He has performed throughout New York, New Jersey, Vermont, as well as aboard cruise ships.

“Fred Barnes is a master. He commands a seemingly endless repertoire of standards, all served up with breath-taking technique. He also sings – surprise? – in a clear, unfussy voice that brings to mind Fred Astaire, with all of the charm the comparison implies. I'd say that no one plays piano like this anymore, except that there's nothing old-fashioned about his playing. In Fred's hands, even the oldest standard becomes as fresh as the day it was written.” – Douglas Anderson, Executive Director of the Middlebury Town Hall Theater

Not a native Vermonter, Sarah Stone began her professional career in musical theater with companies all over her home state of Florida and eventually, toured nationally, singing and dancing her way from Maine to Montana. Now living in Middlebury, she can often be found on stage locally at Middlebury's Town Hall Theater, Vergennes Opera House, among others in productions such as Smokey Joe's Café, Three Penny Opera and most recently, Shrek the Musical.

Tickets are $15. A pre-concert dinner is also available for $15. Reservations are required for dinner and recommended for the show. Contact us at (802)465-4071 or via e-mail. Venue is BYOB.
