Green Zoom Program

A virtual substitute for the VSO’s popular Green Room Program, this lively and interactive presentation led by VSO violinist Jane Kittredge is designed for students in grades 6 through 12. Each session, Jane will lead a small group of students on an exploration of select orchestral repertoire, sharing valuable insights into the music and snippets of recordings, and performing excerpts live. Students will then have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss the life and career of a professional musician, playing in an orchestra, choosing an instrument, and more.
