A formal welcome from
CVYS President Natalie Hanson and Music Director Eric Dasher
The Chippewa Valley Youth Symphony is excited to debut its 34th concert season in 2014-15!
This year, we are fortunate to offer over 75 talented musicians in 6th through 12th grades the opportunity to experience exceptional orchestral ensemble training in a creative and challenging environment while developing friendships that last a lifetime. We are very pleased to welcome Mr. Eric Dasher back to the podium as CVYS music director. He has assembled an accomplished team of section leaders from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and professional music community who will provide additional support to the various instrument sections at every rehearsal. The Chippewa Valley Youth Symphony is proud to be engaged in the greater community through diverse educational partnerships such as these as well as through outreach concerts and volunteer involvement. We strive to bring the joy of music to our talented youth and the communities they represent.
