The Spruce Peak Performing Art Center’s Student Matinee Series partners with the education department of the Flynn Center in Burlington, to connect children, teachers, and schools with the performing arts in deep and meaningful ways. Together, we bring performances to Vermont that both complement school curriculum, and introduce students to new worlds.
The Student Matinee Series is one of Spruce Peak Arts community and education programs and funded by our Community & Education Fund.
