#GivingTuesday 2014
Tuesday, December 2nd

First there was Black Friday, then Cyber Monday, and now Giving Tuesday. Giving Tuesday is a national day of giving and the time to make a charitable gift to organizations that you love and support. We hope you will consider the VYOA this season!

Tuition covers 50% of our annual income and your support plays a part in making some of the following things possible:

  • Orchestra sectionals with some of the finest classical musicians and teachers in our area
  • School tour transportation bringing classical music to students in Franklin County, the Northeast Kingdom, Hanover and Norwich, and many more
  • Professional concert recording fees
  • Performances at the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts
  • Music rental fees
  • Performances and master classes with world-class artists such as Metropolitan Opera artist Latonia Moore, tenor Jesus Garcia, violinist Soovin Kim, cellist Cecily Parnas and many more
  • Presenting school-day and after-school strings, winds and percussion programs at schools serving at-risk students
  • Maintaining our home, the beautiful Elley-Long Music Center
