Where do we sign up?

From WCAX News:

Burlington, Vermont - June 25, 2007

The Vermont Youth Orchestra's tour of China is in full swing, and the young musicians' fans back home can keep up-to-date with their travels.

The VYO has a blog on its web site. Twenty-five kids are keeping online diaries, and taking still photos, video, and sound recordings. The China Project is a program created by the non-profit Young Writers Project.

VYO tour manager Art DeQuasie explains, "We have kids who are just going to record ambient sounds of each place we go to, record several minutes of what's going on in each place, and do interviews. So there will be a whole audio segment to it, which will be great."

When they get back, the Vermont Youth Orchestra plans to produce a DVD using the materials the kids are collecting. Radio and public television documentaries are also possible. You will find a link to the musicians' blog at the top of this article. They plan to update it more frequently as their two-week tour continues.
