enriching lives through music

Summer Programs

Please note: While most of our summer programs are on hold – note that Pit Band, Summer Orchestra Reads, and the Salons are happening!

Pit BandBack to the Future 2020 !

For middle school and high school intermediate to advanced musicians, and all pit band Alums!!  Join us for this joyful BMC/NEYT collaboration. Riley Goodemote returns virtually to direct this “all-comers” online event!  There will be one show-related selection.  Selection pending – but parts should be available soon (by mid July).  Work on your part(s) (get help when you need it), record, and submit.  With a little production magic the “larger than we could fit in NEYT” pit band will be presented online in August!  Let us know you are interested by calling 802.257.4523 or email to info dot bmcvt dot org.  To register we just need the musician’s name, instrument and contact information, and parental contact.  (Over 18? We do not need parental contact!)
