March 23rd 2023

Thank you to all our guests and CVYO members who made our 2022 event so special. 

CVYO’s 2023 event registration will open in February 2023.

1 – Check out our levels
  1. Youth Strings – Most string players begin here. Students should easily be able to play a short work such as the Bach Minuet. Students with vibrato and third position will feel comfortable in the first violins. Average age range: 5-13.
  2. Preparatory Orchestra – Experienced string players in the intermediate levels will be comfortable here. Wind, brass, and percussion players with some ensemble experience will begin here. Average age range: 8-16
  3. Symphony Orchestra – Very experienced string, wind, and brass players will begin here. Symphony studies concert-level (advanced) repertoire. Average age range: 12-18.

2 – Check out and download sheet music
  1. For our open rehearsals, we will spend time on the most friendly piece for each level. Towards the end of rehearsal we will read through the others. Make sure to look at the music and listen to recordings. Music will be posted in February.

3 – Register for the event

Our event is free and open to anyone who wants to experience a day of great orchestral music. Whether you want to sit in with an ensemble that would be easy for you, or want to challenge yourself with a more advanced group, you are welcome to check out the program.

4 – See you soon!

Students and parents are welcome to sit in and watch rehearsals for any other orchestra. Current CVYO students are also welcome to sit in with the next more advanced group to test their preparation ahead of auditions.

We recommend reading through the material so that you are familiar with it, but mostly be prepared for a great time. 

Tell your friends and classmates, and see you on the 23rd!
