Recently, the VBHS Orchestra received an invitation to represent the state of Florida in the 2017 American Celebration of Music in Austria. The student musicians will perform concerts in Salzburg, Innsbruck and Vienna in late May and early June of next year.  Students have begun fundraising efforts and are extremely grateful for the support of the local community.
“Our students are grateful for the support of the local community, donors and patrons who believe in the investment of today’s youth.” Expressed, Matt Stott, VBHS Orchestra Director. “The concert will help provide our students an experience beyond their wildest dreams; representing our community and state, performing in the very place so much of the music we study was created.”
