VBO Day Camp is based on Shirley Given's Adventures in Violinland series.  Characters from the series will be incorporated into both the camp and the Informance, which will be a casual performance for family and friends to wrap up the week's activities. 

Violin Blast-Off instructor, Donna Willingham will be the camp director for both camps.  Read more about Donna on our Teachers page.


Intro to VBO Morning was created based on the feedback of families who wanted to have an opportunity for their child to interact with the violin, and the instructor prior to committing to the fifteen week fall semester of Violin Blast-Off.
