Bravo! Vail Music Festival Celebrates October as Education and Engagement Month
Well-known for bringing world-class musicians and four of the world’s finest orchestras every summer, Bravo! Vail Music Festival continues providing music opportunities throughout the Vail Valley year-round. This October, Bravo! Vail celebrates education and engagement with its recently re-branded after-school lesson program, Bravo! Vail Music Makers Haciendo Música.
Bravo! Vail Music Makers is composed of children in grades 2 through 12 who have the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of instrument training, musical concepts, performance skills and reading music in 45-minute classes. Classes are taught by accomplished piano and violin teachers, and class sizes are kept small to ensure individualized attention for each student. Music Makers Haciendo Música runs through April 15, 2022 in 43 classes from Vail to Gypsum, but October is a special month to bring awareness to the programs and encourage engagement.
“This October brings an opportunity to highlight one of the most important aspects of Bravo! Vail’s mission: to provide access to music education and performances to every child growing up in the Vail Valley,” Caitlin Murray, Bravo! Vail executive director, said. “We are grateful for our partnership with schools in the region to make this goal a reality.”
