The Green Mountain Youth Symphony Third Annual Playathon

Monteplier, Vermont October 8, 2016

GMYS musicians played from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Christ Episcopal Church on State Street in Montpelier to the delight of downtown crowds. This was the third year GMYS has put on a playathon. Delicious baked goods provided by friends and families of GMYS were sold, and increased to the success of this tradition. A big thanks to our musicians who solicited pledges to support our programming.




The GMYS Fall Concert on Sunday, December 11, 2016, 2:00pm at the Barre Opera House will showcase all three orchestras.

The Repertory, Concert, and Senior Orchestras will each perform their own musical offerings.
 The Repertory Orchestra is under the baton of Paul Perley. The Concert and Senior Orchestras are led by GMYS Artistic Director, Bob Blais.
