The Vivace Youth Orchestra strives to create musical enrichment and performance experiences for school-aged young people of Central Texas. VYO gives students opportunities to perform high quality music literature in a setting that is not possible in school-based programs. It is the belief of VYO that students should love to perform, love to rehearse and cherish all opportunities to do so. The instructors and directors of the Vivace Youth Orchestra work to achieve musical excellence in a relaxed and inviting atmosphere seeking to foster a life-long love and appreciation for live music performance and a deep respect for music performers. While student fees are a necessary portion of the orchestra, VYO hopes to never turn a family away from the opportunity for membership based on a family’s inability to pay tuition.
