North Valley Symphony Orchestra Announces Youth Orchestra Assessment Dates

youthorchestraNorth Valley Symphony Orchestra (NVSO) announced the assessment dates for the upcoming 2013-14 season for the Youth Orchestra. NVSO has two orchestras for youth: the NVSO Youth Orchestra, and the NVSO Symphonettes. The Symphonettes focus on providing beginning to intermediate string players with an ensemble experience, and does not require an assessment.  The Youth Orchestra focuses on providing a year-round district honor orchestra level experience.  Highly skilled Youth Orchestra members are also given the opportunity to audition for the Adult Orchestra.  Tuition for either group is $100 for the year.

The assessments for Youth will be held at 23460 North 19th Avenue, Suite 150, in Phoenix, on August 31 and September 7.  Youth rehearsals will be on Mondays at North Canyon High School beginning September 9 from 5-6:30pm.

The 2013-14 concert season includes Youth Orchestra playing at the Adult Orchestra performances, October 19, December 14, March 8 and May 17. Additionally, youth-only concerts featuring both the Youth and Symphonettes will be scheduled in December and May.
