The Kankakee Valley Youth Symphony Orchestra is dedicated to young musicians and their musical training, from grades 7-12. The committee members work diligently to bring the best educators from the area to work with the students at Olivet Nazarene University. By having the concerts and practice sessions at ONU, the KVYSO musicians are taught in a university setting with all of the amenities that are offered there.
Throughout the year, the KVYSO performs in various venues with the two main concerts at ONU’s Larsen Fine Arts Center in the Kresge Auditorium. The concerts take place in the local community schools twice per year.
If you are a parent wanting to start or continue lessons for your child, or you are an accomplished student looking for a challenge, the Music Academy or the Kankakee Valley Youth Symphony Orchestra is the place to be.
