Outreach Concerts

The GMYS Concert Orchestra sometimes visits local public schools for half a day each, reaching more than 500 kindergarten through eighth grade students annually with classroom visits, instrument demonstrations, and short performances. Student musicians playing music for their peers is an exciting and effective way to introduce classical music and orchestral instruments to new audiences. Such outreach efforts:

  1. Establish positive, collaborative relationships between local music teachers and the Green Mountain Youth Symphony;
  2. Support public school music programs by encouraging student participation;
  3. Educate future audience members to enjoy and participate in all types of musical and artistic presentations.


“I can definitely say it was one of the best assemblies I’ve been to, ever. You were fantastic with the kids and took every opportunity to teach them and involve them in the music. It was just delightful from beginning to end.”

- GMYS outreach concert teacher
