The Chippewa Valley Youth Symphony will not be silenced by COVID-19! Let’s keep the music going – join us for the 2020 Virtual Experience!
The 2020 Fall semester will be unlike any other in our 40-year history! The Virtual Experience will provide our members with different enriching activities and projects to connect, engage and improve musicianship. Weekly virtual group sessions will include:
· Musicianship development & technique
· Digital recording training
· Composition workshops and projects
· Conducting clinics
· Concerto preparation workshops
· Guest artists, speakers and clinics
· Composer spotlights
In addition, students will have weekly practice work assigned. They will be encouraged to submit digital recordings of their practice for one-on-one feedback from Dr. Stewart each week! Two to three pieces will be prepared this semester by each student. The individual recordings will be combined and edited to create virtual performances by the entire CVYS orchestra!
The 2020 Virtual Experience is different but beneficial in ways that face-to-face meetings don’t allow. Dr. Stewart will be able to focus on each student individually to greatly improve musicianship and technique. Instruction in composition and conducting will be possible and will be supported by guest artists from across the country, viable through the virtual format.
Don’t miss out on this unique experience! Stay safe while you stay connected and keep playing - Sign up TODAY!

CVYS is able to provide an enriching musical experience to talented young musicians and to the communities of the Chippewa Valley through the support of area businesses and individuals. How can you support CVYS and keep the music going? There are many ways:
Sponsors & Advertisers: Help us connect with companies that you may have a close relationship with who we could approach to sponsor CVYS or advertise in our season booklet. Sponsorships provide a significant portion of our funding and it is important that we grow our sponsorship income.
Chair Sponsorships: Sponsoring a chair gives you the opportunity to name a musician’s chair in honor of someone special or in your family name. It is a wonderful way for families to show their support for CVYS, and can be a meaningful gift to your CVYS musician from you, or from grandparents and other extended family and friends.
Donations: CVYS is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, therefore all donations and sponsorships are tax deductible. Please consider supporting CVYS in your annual charitable giving.
Matching funds: Please apply for any matching fund programs your employer(s) may have in place to match your donation to CVYS.
