April arts picks not eclipsed by total eclipse


Let’s see, what’s going on in Vermont this month? Hmm… Oh, yeah, there’s a total solar eclipse that’s going to be a once-in-a-lifetime event drawing potentially hundreds of thousands of people to our tiny little state for a rare celestial event and all the partying that goes with it.

You won’t find any events from that April 8 occurrence here, however, as we’ve covered that in a separate round-up. What you will find here is a collection of 30 arts-and-entertainment offerings covering almost every day this month except for April 8, with enough music, theater and visual art to keep you so busy you might even forget about that whole moon-blocking-the-sun phenomenon.
