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 professional conductor and an array of guest artists, they tackle challenging techniques and fun repertoire together. 

NOTES

JOIN US IN THE FALL

CVYO's Spring 2024 season wrapped up in April with a lively concert by nearly 40 young players in 3 ensembles - playing to a full house under the direction of our inspiring music director Max Clifford. Handel! Holst! Vivaldi! In late summer, CVYO will host placement auditions for our Fall 2024 season, and we'd love to have you join us for some fabulous music!
