Sundays by audition. 


Founded in 2013 and based in Franklin County, the PVSYO includes musicians from schools across the region, including Hampshire and Franklin counties and southern Vermont. We are an ensemble of talented, hard-working elementary-, middle-, and high-school-age musicians. We have an orbiting team of dedicated family members, professional musicians, and educators, including Youth Orchestra Director Nell Wiener.


The PVS Youth Orchestra performs with the Pioneer Valley Symphony Orchestra in at least one concert each season. In addition, the Youth Orchestra also has an independent concert each semester and takes part in a school performance tour in the spring. 


CHAMBER ENSEMBLE: The PVSYO Chamber Ensemble provides additional performance and musical opportunities to students ready for a more rigorous commitment. Chamber Ensemble is led by a professional coach and rehearses weekly. Chamber Ensemble has performed at Youth Orchestra concerts, community outreach concerts, and at Pioneer Valley Symphony events.
