A group of young Vermont musicians traveled to China this summer, and they experienced the enormous and complex nation in a way the average tourist never could.
Members of the Vermont Youth Orchestra performed in magnificent concert halls, and even played at The Great Wall of China. In between, they toured ancient temples, and strolled through lush gardens.
While in China, students teamed up with The Young Writers Project to create a ‘blog’ with sound recordings, photos and essays.
In the first part of our series, “The China Project”, we hear some of those recordings and blog entries. Daniel Houghton of the Young Writers Project narrates. Click the "Listen" link above to hear Part One of "The China Project".
