|We've changed our name from Vermont
MIDI Project. Some useful older info is still
The old project title just didn't work for us anymore. Students and schools from outside Vermont have been full-fledged participants since 2008. We no longer use midi files as our primary file sharing protocol. As a program, we've been in existence since 1995. "Project" denotes short term and we certainly expect to continue for years to come.
