Ventura Music Festival – Ventura CA


From Executive Director Susan Scott

Ten+ years ago VMF Artistic Director Nuvi Mehta began presenting his Music in the Schools curriculum to children in VUSD. Today the program is still going strong, supported in Ventura by grants from Aera Energy Ltd. and the Julius Gius Foundation. Starting Fall 2020, it will also be available to elementary schools in Santa Paula thanks to a just-announced grant from Limoneira.  With the program currently on hiatus, it seems an excellent time to share some of the reviews written by audience members from the 3rd, 4th and 5th grades.  

Mostly they’re meant to make you smile. (How wide is up to you!) Enjoy.
