Mark Alpizar is the recently-appointed music director of the Vermont Youth Orchestra Association and will conduct the Vermont Youth Orchestra this season.

On Sunday, November 8th the Vermont Youth Orchestra is presenting its Fall concert, live streamed from the Elley-Long Music Center in Colchester. Due to health concerns, the concert will look a bit different this year, with the 80-member orchestra divided into smaller groups, streaming their performances over the course the afternoon and evening. This adapted presentation was the idea of Mark Alpizar, the new music director of the Vermont Youth Orchestra Association. VPR Classical’s, James Stewart had a chance to chat with Mark over a Zoom call to talk about Sunday’s concert, Mark’s career and passion for youth orchestra, and the vision and mission of the VYOA.

You can find out more information about the performances of the Vermont Youth Orchestra this Sunday at their website, VYO.org.
