About Our Auction

Welcome and thanks for visiting the VYOA Online Auction!

All proceeds from this annual fundraiser support the organization's robust financial aid program. During the 2018-2019 season, the VYOA has awarded $40,000 in need-based scholarships so that all interested students can experience the joy of playing in an orchestra.

Our love of music inspires us to welcome all families regardless of their economic circumstances, and your bids show that you share these same values. You'll notice there are opportunities to "fund-a-need" by sponsoring specific VYOA programs as well as a donate button. However you choose to support the VYOA, you should feel good knowing your gift is an investment in big dreams & bright futures. Thanks for your support!

About Vermont Youth Orchestra Association

For over 50 years the Vermont Youth Orchestra Association (VYOA) has been a leader in shaping our region’s young musicians. This season, over 300 musicians in grades 1 – 12 represent 60 elementary, middle, and high schools and hail from 41 towns from across Vermont and neighboring states. With a keen focus on children of all ages, the VYOA offers a wide range of programming; this includes three orchestras, three training programs for beginning to intermediate strings, winds, and brass students, a percussion ensemble, a private lesson program, school partnerships and community initiatives, summer camps, and an early childhood concert series. You can hear VYOA musicians of all ages perform over 20 concerts, recitals, and community engagement presentations throughout the 2018-2019 season.

All programs are based at the Elley-Long Music Center at St. Michael’s College. The Elley-Long Music Center is the former Cavalry Riding or Drill Hall located at Fort Ethan Allen and was renovated by the VYOA between 1999 and 2001. This beautiful building is the home of the VYOA and the primary rehearsal and concert venue for many northern Vermont performing arts organizations.
