VAIL — The Vail Public Library has partnered with Vail Mountain School and Bravo! Vail’s piano program to bring a unique children’s concert to the library. The debut concert will be held in the fireplace area of the library on Thursday at 3:30 p.m. The public is invited to this afternoon of fun and free entertainment.
VMS Voices is a choral group consisting for third-, fourth- and fifth-graders from Vail Mountain School. These students build vocal technique while singing music from all genres. The program will include two Broadway tunes, one song straight off the pop charts and songs where students dance and play instruments, as well.
“I am always looking for ways our students can perform in the community. I am so excited that we can be part of this Children’s Spring Concert,” said Karlie Carter, VMS Voices director.
The Coffeehouse Jazz Combo is a middle school group that includes many of the band instruments such as flute, saxophone, trumpet, clarinet, bass clarinet and drum kit. They play jazz standards and pop tunes. Local pianists who study with Dina Patsiavos from Bravo! Vail will also be part of the fun. Patsiavos has invited a number of her students who represent talent from several local schools.
“We have been trying to find unique ways to showcase local talent,” said librarian Michelle Jirenec. “I love that this spring concert focuses on our local youth. It will be fun to share this musical gift with the public.”
This program is free and open to 970-479-2187.
