The Southern Vermont Sinfonia (formerly the Green Mountain Youth Orchestra) is a haven of music-making resonating among the foothills of the Green Mountains in Bennington, Vermont. Our local youth and passionate community members converge each Wednesday evening to bring to life great works of the past and present. Founded in 1987 by Ellen Sager, the Southern Vermont Sinfonia accepts musicians of all ages and levels. Talented musicians from the VT/MA/NY tri-state area rehearse weekly and perform two to three times a season. The SVS represents the fulfillment of founder Ellen Sager's longtime goal of reestablishing a quality orchestral program in the area. 

The SVS is comprised of three performance groups:

Repertory String Ensemble for string players who are still developing their skills. The group works on string orchestra repertoire while refining scales, theory and tone production. The Repertory Strings perform two to three times a year.


Sinfonia Ensemble for advanced string, wind, brass and percussion players.

Chamber Music is for musicians who are highly-motivated and interested in rehearsing/performing in a small ensemble of 5 players or less. 

All ensembles meet on Wednesday evenings at Saint John the Baptist Church hall in North Bennington, VT.

3 Houghton Lane, North Bennington.

If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold,
it would be a merrier world.
