Music In The Mountains

mountains
Vermont's verdant summer surroundings call out to vacationers and outdoor enthusiasts of all types. They also attract some of the world's most gifted musicians who flock to Vermont each summer for its beauty, solitude and for the chance to share their dedication to music with the next generation of potential virtuosos. Vermont Public Television plans to explore this tradition of Music in the Mountains through the very human stories playing out over three, different musical workshop/festivals held across Vermont in the summer months.

Segments

KOSA Percussion Workshop

The KOSA workshop is an annual percussion camp for students of all ages to learn more about their craft.

Tradition of Sharing

The dozen or so students who spend the summer learning at the workshops through the Manchester Music Festival not only study the intimate art of expressing Chamber Music, they also teach it. For one full week these college-aged music students become teachers themselves, instructing the next generation of musicians aged 6-18. You'll see how this tradition has developed over the nearly 40 years that these top-notch musicians have been coming to Manchester, VT. Learn how managing this six-week festival has passed from father to son. And watch as this close-knit community embraces their musical, summer neighbors by inviting them to play at church services and enjoying the beautiful sounds emanating from their headquarters located in refurbished, pre-Civil War-era school.

VYO Reveille Camp

Youngsters who come to this summer camp forego canoeing and archery to instead learn proper breathing techniques and musical composition. This day camp run by the Vermont Youth Orchestra provides young musicians with the opportunity to develop their musical skills by participating in both large and small ensembles. In addition, the kids can experiment with jazz band, chorus, music theory and improvisation. We'll introduce you to some of the campers as they are being introduced to the music of Gustav Mahler.
