Very Young Composers

The Youth Foundation announces the second winter session of Vail’s Very Young Composers program. This program is happening in collaboration with the Youth Foundation’s First Notes program. VYC was brought to Vail eight years ago by Jon Deak and Bill Gordh, of the New York Philharmonic. This program empowers young people to compose for classical instruments. During the program, students learn to create, notate and hear their very own music performed by professional musicians. Students of all musical backgrounds and experience are welcome, from grades three though 12th. The program will take place Dec. 29 to Jan. 3 at Avon Elementary School and the Avon Public Library. Registration is limited to 25 participants. For more information and to register, please contact Jessica Chen at
