Music frequently played by the CVYO

Although we love to play fantastic classical music - this is not all we play. From Bach to the Beatles, Strauss to Schoenberg and Jenkins to John Williams, CVYO musicians get to rehearse and perform a wide range of challenging and exciting music.

The scores chosen by the CVYO Musical Directors are selected to give young players a taste of all sorts of music and to ensure that the orchestra's loyal and supportive audiences are guaranteed an enjoyable and varied range of performances.

Here is a list of some of the music we play and some recent video clips of our performances. If you would like to see more video and photos of the orchestra you can find a lot more on Flickr.
