During the week of July 7 to 11, parents can choose between two 50-minute sessions every day at 9 or 10 a.m. Lessons are taught by the Festival’s talented Young Artists and take place at the First Congregational Church and MMF’s Festival House on Dillingham Avenue in Manchester Village, Vt. The week concludes with a recital at 11 a.m. on Friday, July 11, at the FCC. Participants receive free passes to the Young Artists concerts in the summer.
