Music-making has the power to transform lives

The Vermont Youth Orchestra Association (VYOA) is a community that transforms young people’s lives through music by fostering a culture where musicians realize their artistic potential, form lifelong friendships, and strive for musical excellence. Now in its 58th year, the VYOA will serve nearly 300 musicians in grades 1 – 12 from 49 elementary, middle, and high schools, hailing from 9 Vermont counties and neighboring states. With programs for all ages, the VYOA offers performing ensembles and orchestras, training programs, a private lesson program, school partnerships and community initiatives, summer camps, and an early childhood concert series. This season, VYOA musicians will perform over 20 concerts and recitals throughout our region.
