Vail Daily letter: Great experience for kids

Wow! We were so lucky to have the opportunity to listen to the fantastic Russian National Orchestra in our back yard at the wonderful Vilar Performing Arts Center.

Several weeks ago I received an e-mail from the Vail Valley Foundation offering tickets for my music students as part of their Nurturing Future Artists Program to attend the performance Tuesday, Feb. 23. My music studio was able to host a musical field trip up to the Vilar.

In the afternoon before the concert Topher, 7, told me at his lesson how excited he was for “tonight.” The students were able to enjoy Beethoveen’s piano concerto No. 5 in E-flat major with Yuja Wang on piano. The second half was the Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 4 in F minor. It was a wonderful musical experience. Thank you!
