"[Borodin’s Polovtsian Dances] sparkled ... closing with a rousing, energetic but finely-controlled finale which, quite rightly, brought the audience to its feet."
Deryk Barker, Music in Victoria, May 1, 2016
Read the full review of our May 1, 2016 concert here.
Founded in 1986, the Greater Victoria Youth Orchestra has been producing outstanding orchestral music for a quarter of a century. Season after season, the GVYO presents a truly impressive range of repertoire to Victoria's audiences, sharing their magnificent music with school children at home and as far afield as Haida Gwaii (2001) and the Yukon Territory (2006).
Guided by internationally acclaimed conductors and coaches, the orchestra is proud of the many opportunities it offers young, dedicated musicians. GVYO alumni can be found in prestigious schools, ensembles, and orchestras throughout the world. Join us this season, and be uplifted by the passion our youth bring to the world's best music!
