Meet the Greater Victoria Youth Orchestra– 60 expressive, focused young musicians who bring symphonic music to life! Respected as one of the finest youth orchestras in the country, the GVYO has shared masterworks with thousands of listeners, young and old, in Victoria and beyond.
Guided by Music Director Yariv Aloni and a distinguished faculty, GVYO players explore centuries of symphonic style as they build ensemble and performance skills - and lasting friendships.
