North Valley Symphony Orchestra (NVSO) is comprised of adult musicians from all walks of life: teachers, engineers, pilots, policemen, healthcare, labor and management. We share one common goal: the pursuit of exceptional live music performance. The orchestra also invites exceptional North Valley Youth Orchestra members to participate. All members must audition for the orchestra and be accepted. That said, we recognize that we are not a professional orchestra, and the community spirit and camaraderie in our group is very positive and accepting.
If you have a passion to perform great music, can attend weekly rehearsals, and are willing to commit to the necessary practice, we want you in our orchestra!!
Mondays, 7:00 - 9:15 pm, North Canyon High School, 1700 East Union Hills Drive, Phoenix, 85024
Stand fees are currently $40 per year to help defray the cost of music and rehearsal space. All NVSO members are also asked to help promote each concert by selling a "six-pack" of tickets for $20, and assist with rehearsal and concert logistics as they are able.
