More than 30 Vandoren Regional Artists (VRA) assembled in Chicago, Illinois in May for the annual VRA Summit.

Every year, DANSR gathers their regional artists from across the country to recap the successes of the previous school year and discuss goals for the next.

“This group of artists and teachers inspires us, energizes us, and keeps us on our toes throughout the year,” says brand manager Michael Fenoglio. “Gathering together in one place every summer to share ideas about what worked and what we can do better is so powerful. Beyond that, the summit is a shot in the arm for the program and the company to continue doing what we love most, which is educating and inspiring young musicians to become the best they can be.”

The VRA program provides free, educational clinics to band programs across the country every year. Since its inception in 2015, the program has organically grown to include over 40 elite clinicians, reaching thousands of band programs during that time.
