The Vermont Youth Orchestra and Vermont Symphony Orchestra return to build upon the remarkable partnership forged this past season with Carnegie Hall’s Weill Institute. The three-year partnership aims to celebrate the magic of orchestral music and inspire schoolchildren to raise their musical voices. Participating teachers receive free recorders for each ticketed student as well as a simple curriculum with which to explore that one musical element that brings us all together: rhythm! Through the curriculum and highly interactive concert (kids perform live with the orchestra from their seats!), students will learn how composers and musicians play with elements of musical time, creating exciting patterns of sound and silence. We’re thrilled to continue this nation-wide orchestral program here in Vermont!
