We are very excited to announce that our 36th Opus concert will be held in Burlington on April 26th, 2022! Young composers are paired with professional composers as they create an original piece of music, which is then premiered by the best musicians in Vermont to hundreds of friends, family, and community members.
This can be a truly life-changing experience for young people, and each Opus concert reminds us of the creativity held by the next generation of musicians. It's an amazing opportunity that you don't want your children or students to miss!
