CMS Band and Chorus students had the opportunity to listen to the Vermont Youth Orchestra Association's orchestra, Vermont Youth Philharmonia (VYP) perform Monday, April 4th. This was a special event for us in two ways: 1) it was the first live orchestra performance for many of our students, and 2) the ensemble features several former CMS students, and one current student, Anna Kalfus! Dr. Kono not only lead the orchestra through four diverse pieces, but also discussed the history of some of the music, as well as the role of the conductor. Two of our students even had the chance to 'conduct' the orchestra! For information about upcoming auditions, click here, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
