Vermont Music and Arts Center
VMAC (the Vermont Music and Arts Center) is a workshop for serious amateur musicians who would like to play chamber music in an informal and congenial atmosphere
VMAC differs from most workshops in that our faculty usually play with us rather than listening and teaching from the outside. Instead of being assigned groups for three or four pieces of music, we choose our own repertoire and form our own ensembles, which may include one of the coaches at our invitation. Playing with the faculty - being coached from within the group - inspires us, and we learn from their example. Selected "Works of the Weeks" (see links to various activities, left) are suggested for groups that want more formal coaching, but particpants may ask for coaching on a different work of their choice.
The Center maintains a library of over 1000 performing editions of chamber music, from baroque to contemporary, for strings, winds, keyboard, and voice.
