Youth and Teen Chamber Music
Green Mountain Youth Symphony (GMYS) is a vibrant community dedicated to fostering a sense of unity among young musicians from central and northern Vermont and New Hampshire. Our mission transcends borders and cultures as we believe in the power of music to connect people, inspire creativity, and instill a sense of camaraderie among young artists. We celebrate the enthusiasm of our young musicians and guide them as they express their passion through the performance of great music.
Chamber Music at GMYS
Chamber Music offers young musicians the opportunity to experience the rich and diverse history of classical music in the context of small ensembles. With weekly coachings throughout the Fall and Winter/Spring sessions, students build interpersonal connections while taking their musicianship to higher levels.
GMYS's Chamber Music program emphasizes skills such as leadership, collaboration, listening and goal setting all while studying with an expert chamber music coach. Students audition for Chamber Music so groups can be formed with attention to age and level. Works are thoughtfully selected for each group that will inspire and challenge each student. Every group will have multiple performance opportunities throughout the each session at GMYS.
Musical Experience in a Fun Setting
At GMYS, we understand that learning is most effective when it's fun and engaging. We provide a stimulating environment that fosters both personal and musical growth. Our programs are not just about performing; they're about enjoying the process, making new friends, and creating unforgettable memories.
Need-Based Tuition Assistance
We believe that every child who shows an interest in music should have the opportunity to explore and nurture their passion, regardless of their financial situation. That's why we offer need-based tuition assistance to ensure that all interested young musicians have the chance to participate in our orchestral programs.
Join us at GMYS and become a part of our thriving community of young musicians. Let's create beautiful music together.
