ABOUT

Mission - Vision - Values

Northern Valley Youth Orchestras is dedicated to providing enrichment opportunities and mentoring to promising young musicians, and excellent music for its varied audiences. NVYO is about making music, making friends, and making a difference in the community.​

Mission Statement

The purpose of NVYO shall be to provide an exceptional musical education experience to the members of the orchestras and chamber music programs and to provide artistic performances that enrich the lives of developing musicians, our communities, and our region.

Vision

Inspired young people achieving their full musical and personal potential while meaningfully engaging with and enriching their communities.

Non-Discrimination Statement

Northern Valley Youth Orchestras does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, creed, disability, sexual orientation, or gender expression in any of its activities or operations. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members.

School Program Statement

Northern Valley Youth Orchestras believes it is important for all of its members to participate in their school music programs, if available, and expects such participation except in cases of unavoidable scheduling conflict. Participation in a school music group not only helps advocate for fine arts education, it is important for the development of ensemble and leadership skills which can in turn strengthen the NVYO ensembles.

NVYO ensembles are meant to complement and strengthen other music instruction and thus enhance musical development; they are not intended to be a replacement for school or private instruction. 

Core Values

  1. Excellence: we aspire to the highest attainable level of musical and artistic excellence.

  2. Engagement: we cultivate active and meaningful community interaction and connections

  3. Accessibility: we value our increasingly diverse community, and strive to represent and reflect that diversity in our membership and audiences.

  4. Integrity: we respect NVYO’s members, participants, community, and supporters by carrying out our mission and programming with honesty and transparency.

  5. Responsibility: we take care of our resources, people, and financial and physical assets, both actual and potential; we research and make decisions in the long term best interests of NVYO, our mission, and our communities.

  6. Joy: we celebrate the positive, tangible benefits of challenging musical and technical training and performance in a caring and supportive environment.
