The Vermont Fiddle Orchestra

Summer Youth Programs

VFO for Youth is made up of students entering fourth through eighth grade who are advancing beginner through intermediate players. Like the community orchestra, the parts are graduated so that musicians of various levels can play together. Tunes are also learned in the traditional format by ear. This provides something for everyone: ear training, speed facility, ensemble playing, music reading, and a social network for young folk musicians. Led by Sarah Hotchkiss.

VFO for Advanced Teens is a group that providing a place for advanced teen fiddlers to learn tunes in the traditional manner (by ear) at a rapid pace, as well as providing an opportunity to perform as a band under the direction of prominent Vermont Fiddlers such as Pete Sutherland and Sarah Blair.

One day festivals and workshops will be scheduled during the school year and youths and teens are also welcome to participate in the community orchestra for any of the sessions providing they are able to work well in an adult environment.
