OUR MISSION
The SCVYO has served Santa Clarita Valley for over 30 years.  Our Mission is to provide a low cost, quality music education program to the children and young adults of our community.  Our fees are one-fourth the cost of equivalent programs throughout Southern California.  We, therefore, are able to offer opportunities, including scholarships, to young people who otherwise
could not afford music education and instruction.

YOUR HELP
We depend on the support of individuals, families and
businesses to fulfill our Mission.  We are excited to offer three new ensembles
beginning Spring 2017, including Chamber Music, Brass, and Prelude Winds.

Your generosity will ensure our continuing endeavor to provide
classical music education and performance opportunities to the youth of our
community, while bolstering their memory, math, reading and comprehension skills,
teaching perseverance and teamwork, providing a sense of achievement,
while bringing happiness in life to musicians and patrons, alike.
