Why: The school tour program takes a VYOA musical group to area schools in the state on a given day, including transportation. It introduces school kids to an orchestra of peers and to the idea of playing a musical instrument that they perhaps never thought of. It's an important outreach program for the VYOA that helps the community and the VYOA at the same time.
This program was canceled 6 years ago due to budget cuts. In 2011, 2012, and 2013, I organized fun runs to try to help bring the school tours back and keep focus on the program. The Fun Runs were successful and the tours are up and running again. This year, I am holding another run to help keep the school tour alive.
All the orchestras and choral groups went on tours to schools around the state over the past 3 years and they have been greatly successful.
