The China Project - Overview
The China Project, was a multi-media chronicle of the Vermont Youth Orchestra's performing tour of China in the summer of 2007. Young Writers Project held workshops, created and maintained a multi-media blog (since retired, sorry) and published student work in newspapers, on Vermont Public Radio and Vermont Public Television and on stage at First Night/Burlington.

- The original multi-media blog of the VYO trip to China has been retired.
- Vermont Public Radio's two-part series, with narration and student clips, and an interview with YWP Founder Geoffrey Gevalt
- Text of students' Aug. 12, 2007, feature story in Vermont Today, then the Sunday magazine of the Rutland Herald/Times Argus.
- Musicians talk about what they learned by doing The China Project with YWP.
While the trip garnered many news stories in Vermont papers, most are no longer archived or are hidden behind a "pay" wall on the newspapers' sites. Sorry.
