LVYO REMAINS OLD SCHOOL “CREATIVE CHAMBER” THEME

FOR THIS CURRENT 2020|21 SEASON


For over forty years, LVYO has been serving the youth in our community by providing the opportunity to rehearse and produce amazing concerts: 70 member plus size orchestras, 5 program levels advancing abilities each year, amazing concerts in amazing halls...this, of course, has temporarily stopped.

LVYO has taken steps to still offer in-person rehearsals.

PROGRAM LEVELS

Students are being placed within the five main programs:

Symphonic Band - grades 6 thru 9   |  Ensemble - a beginning string only group  |   Concert Strings - intermediate string only group

Symphony - intermediate-level full orchestra with strings, winds, brass, percussion   |   Youth Philharmonic - advanced level full orchestra with strings, winds, brass, percussion

CHAMBER STYLE WITHIN EACH PROGRAM

Program groups are being broken down into smaller chamber style ensembles. The largest group will range between 18 and 24 members, depending on instrument sizes and lead by the program’s conductor.  Other members within the program will be broken down into groups which may include quartets, quintets, octets, etc,  as examples.  These smaller groups will be directed by our various coaches.  Through a rotation system, students will experience the range of music being offered.

PROGRAM LENGTH

All programs are limited to one hour, a suggestion by the CDC.
