Concert season is in full swing at the VYOA and with it, a continuation of the VYO blog. From the beginning of April through May 3, students April Burbank (oboe) and Suzanne Calhoun (horn) will be creating blog posts about their enthusiastic preparation for the VYO spring concert, “Choral Fireworks”. They’ll offer perspective, commentary and a glimpse into life at the Elley-Long Music Center at Saint Michael’s College during the height of spring rehearsals.
“Choral Fireworks” is an exciting musical program, featuring the first-time collaboration between the VYO and the VYO Chorus. Audiences will be treated to the sound of one hundred and fifty of Vermont’s finest, young instrumentalists and singers performing together, led by VYO conductor Troy Peters and VYO choral conductor Jeffrey Buettner.
Catch the concert in two locations: Friday, May 1 at 8:00 pm at the Dibden Center for the Arts at Johnson State College, and again on Sunday, May 3 at 3:00 pm in Burlington’s historic Flynn Center for the Performing Arts.
