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 rehearse for 10 weeks at Emmaus Baptist Church, culminating in a final concert.  The first session starts in September and the second session usually in late January.  Because of the 2020 coronavirus pandemic, we have a different format this year.  Please see our September 2020 programming below….
