YOCVA in the community
YOCVA members are regional award winning musicians who participate in a wide range of community activities in their schools and in our community. YOCVA musicians serve as principals their school orchestras and bands and are recognized in all-district, region, and state orchestras under the VBODA. Many of our members are selected to attend the Governor’s School for the Performing Arts.
Youth Orchestra members develop leadership and performance skills with opportunities to perform in public at local businesses and community events. Recent performances include:
Monticello Holiday House tours and 4th of July Ceremony
First Night Virginia on the Haven Stage
Charlottesville Symphony at the University of Virginia
WTJU radio Story Telling at Bon Café
YOCVA members also advocate for young people and encourage their participation in the musical arts through events such as Monticello Summer Adventures Camp, the Richmond Symphony Lollipops program, and being music mentors in the Musical Fusion camp with Computers4Kids.
Watch for our members this summer at the 2016 4th of July Naturalization Ceremony at Monticello as YOCVA supports the Municipal Band in entertaining more than 4,000 guests!
