VFO Practice Tunes


The Vermont Fiddle Orchestra‘s Winter 2023 Concert tunes: 

The VFO will play its 20th Anniversary Concert Saturday, Dec. 2, 2023. See details.    Rehearsals began September 13 and the concert tunes will be introduced weekly at each rehearsal and posted here in alphabetical order as they are taught.

NOTE: “By-ear tunes” are taught without sheet music as warm-ups for rehearsals and to practice learning by ear.  A “tune at the tail”, is a well known, easy tune played for relaxing at the end of a rigorous rehearsal.   Neither were played at the concert.

Watch this space in as the season progresses to see tunes being prepared for the Winter Concert.

  • Background: I started this site about seven years ago largely for my own convenience, but it quickly grew to be useful for a number of other musicians in my area.  Since then it has grown far beyond my original vision, with over 1,000 tunes posted and around 5,500 user sessions per month from more than 30 countries.  Until now I have built and maintained the site out of my own pocket but its increasing size and complexity is requiring more outside resources and costs; hence this appeal. So if this site is helpful to you, please consider a small contribution.
