District VI Winter Music Festival to be held at BFUHS

WESTMINSTER — Bellows Falls Union High School will host nearly 200 talented young musicians from southern Vermont high schools and middle schools for the annual District VI Winter Music Festival on Friday, Jan. 27 and Saturday, Jan. 28.

The Winter Festival will feature students who auditioned and were selected to represent their district in high school concert choirs, high school jazz ensembles, and middle school concert bands.

Students who participate in Districts have the opportunity to audition at a competitive level and perform challenging compositions.

The young musicians work independently until the larger group comes together for this District Music Festival. Volunteer professional musicians and music educators work with the students rehearsing on Friday and Saturday, and the festival culminates with a public concert held on Jan. 28, at 4 p.m., in the BFUHS Auditorium.

Concert ticket prices are $4 for adults, $2 for students/senior citizens. The concert is sponsored by the Connecticut Valley Music Festival Association and the Vermont Music Educators Association.
