Performances on the Great Wall, language lessons, and city
adventures. This summer’s trip to China

the Young Writer’s Project. We hear from

A group of young Vermont musicians traveled to China this summer and experienced the enormous and complex nation in a way the average tourist never could. In collaboration with the Young Writers Project, VPR hears the voices of those students in â€œThe China Project.â€ Listen Monday and Tuesday during Vermont Edition on VPR.
