Central Valley Orchestras Mission

"Enhance the Quality of Life and Encourage Greatness Through Musical Experience"

To gain knowledge about the beauty of music and different genres and cultures in which they are composed. To learn technique, posture, and responsibility that will help further education and life skills. Learning about music will help develop a sense of pride and appreciation for the fine arts community. Music is a form of expression; every child should have the opportunity to express themselves whether it be through music, or another art form.
