On behalf of everyone at the VYOA, I wish to congratulate the talented young musicians of VYO, VYP, VYS, Chorus, and Chorale on their incredible OrchestraChorusPalooza performances. Palooza gives us a unique opportunity to bring our entire organization together, and powerfully demonstrates the musical and personal growth our students experience during their years with the VYOA. If you were in the audience on Sunday, I trust you were moved by the joy and passion with which the musicians performed, and by the inspirational reflections of our senior speakers.
We are deeply grateful for everyone’s attendance at the concert, and for the support of the sponsors, volunteers, donors, and community partners that make these memorable musical experiences possible. Thank you for partnering with us to ensure young Vermonters have access to the high quality musical experiences they need and deserve!
