NEWPORT CITY - For 69 years, some of the best student musicians appeared onstage at the Northern Vermont Music Festival sponsored by the Rotary Club of Newport. The tradition continued at North Country Union High School Friday evening and Saturday afternoon.
Many who attended it called the performances "A memory you won't forget."
About 175 high school students from 12 schools participated in this year's festival. Participating schools included Blue Mountain Union High School, Canaan High School, Danville High School, Hazen Union High School, Lake Region Union High School, Lamoille Union High School, Lyndon Institute, North Country Union High School, People's Academy, St. Johnsbury Academy, and Stowe High School.
