The Cannon Valley Youth Orchestra has served young string musicians from Northfield MN and surrounding communities for more than twenty years.  CVYO has three orchestras who normally rehearse for 10 weeks at Emmaus Baptist Church, culminating in a final concert.  The first session usually starts in September and the second session usually in late January.  But this past year has been different!  See our recent programming below.
