Northern Valley Youth Orchestras – Auditions THIS weekend

Your budding musician will be right at home with the Northern Valley Youth Orchestra!  Northern Valley Youth Orchestras (NVYO) is a non-profit music organization that provides orchestral and chamber music experiences for dedicated young string, wind, brass and percussion musicians. Intended as a supplement to any other instruction that students receive at school or at private lessons, NVYO is an auditioned program with minimum playing expectations for each of its programs. NVYO’s programs are focused on challenging students to play technically and musically; we provide coaching, encouragement and direction from seasoned teachers and performers.

Audition sign-ups are online right now; auditions begin Saturday @ Arioso Music Academy.

Suggested ages for strings auditions: 9 to 20.

Suggested ages for winds, brass and percussion: 14 to 20.

NVYO was recently featured in the Grand Forks Herald!
