VSO MUSICIANS TO PERFORM AT FAYSTON SCHOOL!

The Vermont Symphony Orchestra’s “Symphony Reel” String Trio will perform at Fayston School on March 11 at 8:45.  The day is made possible by generous support of the Fayston PTO.
“Symphony Reel” takes students on a unique journey though a range of musical styles, including classical and folk.  The musicians—cellist John Dunlop, violinist Laura Markowitz, and violist Ana Ruesink—are all veteran performers with the Symphony, and experienced educators as well.  The presentation ends with the creation of a unique folk tune for our school!
These performances are part of the Vermont Symphony Orchestra’s statewide SymphonyKids education program, which reached over 23,000 schoolchildren last year with 266 presentations serving 151 schools in 113 different communities. The VSO’s traveling ensembles visit all corners of the state as part of an outreach program known as the Lois H. McClure “Musicians-in-the-Schools” Program. These lively concerts are met with overwhelming enthusiasm, as the musical ambassadors spread the word that classical music can be fun!
