CANNON VALLEY YOUTH ORCHESTRA
Cannon Valley Youth Orchestra loves to work and play with young musicians, advancing artistic skills and studying exciting music together. We invite string players with at least 1 year of experience (ages 8-18) to bring your violins, violas, cellos, and basses and join our ensembles.
Based in Northfield, Minnesota, CVYO's 3 orchestras draw adventurous kids from around the Cannon Valley who enjoy playing beyond their home studios and school orchestras.
Inspired and instructed by our conductor Max Clifford and an array of guest artists, they tackle challenging techniques and fun repertoire together.
CVYO's Fall 2023 season starts on Tuesday, September 12 under the direction of our inspiring new music director, Max Clifford. We invite young string players to join us for a 10-minute placement audition on Saturday, August 26 or Thursday, September 7 aimed at finding a best fit for all students with one of our 3 lively school-year orchestras.
