Kennebec Valley Youth Orchestra

The Kennebec Valley Youth Orchestra is an exciting option for developing musicians. This ensemble is appropriate for intermediate student musicians who are growing in mastery of their instruments. KVYO primarily plays arrangements; we typically join KVYS for one piece each program. The Kennebec Valley Youth Orchestra offers the opportunity to perform with other excellent middle & high school students who are excited to expand their musical horizons! Mr. Daniel Keller brings his expertise & humor as the conductor of KVYO.

Previous ensemble experience and private instruction are highly recommended. Students are expected to continue participation in their school orchestra and/or band programs.

In non-COVID times, KVYO meets at the University of Maine at Augusta on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-7:30. For Fall 2020, we are still working on a plan for rehearsals. Tuition is $150 for the year, payable with the application. Spring-only students pay $75.

We hold regular auditions in September, February, and May, but rolling auditions are available throughout the year. To schedule, contact our Education Director, Betsy Kobayashi.
