Annual Workshop

VYSO workshops have taken place each fall for many years, and are for all orchestra levels. There is no additional cost to musicians — workshops are included in tuition. The workshops are designed for musicians to get to know each other better, to make new friends, and to get the season off to a fun and strong musical start.

Senior and Intermediate Orchestras

The Senior and Intermediate Orchestras take part together in a weekend workshop in September at Capilano University in North Vancouver. The workshop includes extensive small sectionals with some of the finest professional musicians in the Lower Mainland, and concludes with a combined VYSO Intermediate/Senior Orchestra concert on Sunday afternoon at the Capilano University Performance theatre. Family and friends are encouraged to attend this season-opener concert!

“VYSO is a fantastic organization that expands my musical horizons beyond school band.

 

You will meet a diverse group of youth who share the same musical passion and eventually become like a second family!

 

I look forward to every rehearsal!”
