The National Endowment for the Arts is going to be helping the Vermont Symphony Orchestra conduct its 2012 Made in Vermont Music Festival tour.
The tour will include a commissioned work by Vermont composer David Feurzeig.
The Vermont Symphony Orchestra is one of almost 800 organizations across the country that will receive a total of $24.8 million in NEA Art Works grants. The Vermont Symphony is recommended for a $12,500 grant.
The Made in Vermont Tour will take place between Sept. 27 and Oct. 7.
Vermont Symphony Executive Director Alan Jordan says the tour brings music to the state’s villages and towns.
