Williston violinist Amanda Milne is a featured soloist in the Vermont Youth Orchestra’s 50th anniversary kickoff this weekend.

Milne and Vergennes High School senior Ruby Dombek will take the stage at the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts on Sept. 29, performing Antonio Vivaldi’s Concerto for Two Violins. The concert is set to begin at 3 p.m. Milne will also play Sept. 28 during a school tour to St. Johnsbury Academy and Craftsbury Academy.

Composed during Vivaldi’s time as violin teacher at Pio Ospedale della Pietà, a Venetian girls’ orphanage, the work is a standout among his numerous violin concerti.

Milne has been with the Vermont Youth Orchestra Association since 2004, when she started with its beginning string program, Presto.
