Music is a collaborative art, so we create programming collaboratively.

Collaborative programs are like musicians coming together to form an ensemble. By partnering with over 35 Upper Valley organizations, we create programs that no one organization could provide by themselves, and in the process access the multi-dimensional benefits of music education.

Student perform using instruments they created.
Multi-generational music making.
More Info

Children make instruments and then compose music with their new instruments in UVMC and AVA Gallery’s joint summer camp.
