Summit School of Traditional Music and Culture, co-founded in 2007 by Rebecca Singer and Katie Trautz, is a nonprofit 501c3 organization based in Montpelier, Vermont, which serves the greater North/Central region of Vermont. Summit School promotes cross-cultural understanding through music, dance and the exploration of diverse cultures through the arts. We offer classes and seminars for all ages, summer music camps for children, workshops with visiting regional, national and international artists, and a schedule of concerts by renowned traditional artists from the region, country and abroad.
In the past 6 years Summit School has hosted a stellar list of national and international artists in our effort to expand cultural understanding within our own state and nation. We have hosted musical artists from Africa, Ireland, Norway, Canada and other countries. These intimate workshops and classes give students an opportunity to learn from masters at their craft close to home in a format that is appealing to both children as well as adults.
Summit School also provides outreach opportunities by offering workshops on Traditional Music and Culture to schools and community groups. It is our hope that nurturing our local cultural economy will also foster awareness and acceptance of diverse cultures.
