A Message from the Maestro
Registration is now open, excerpts are posted, auditions are being accepted, and it is time to get excited and prepare for CVYO's 60th Anniversary Concert Season!

While we're still working on the details, we are ready and looking forward to making beautiful music again. 

New, exciting music has been selected and is being prepared. This is the perfect time to print the season repertoire and to listen to it on our Spotify page

I am excited to move to the position of Director Emeritus and this will be my last message to you as CVYO's Artistic Director. I look forward to working alongside Maestros Mr. and Mrs. Tseitlin, and to continue our journey creating the highest quality of orchestral music. We are looking forward to seeing all of the new and returning musicians and cannot wait to get started. See you soon! 

Mr. Benson
