Inclement Weather Policy
If the Eau Claire School District cancels school, the Youth Symphony will cancel rehearsal. If schools are dismissed early, rehearsal will also be cancelled. If inclement weather occurs after school hours, any rehearsal cancellations will be communicated on this website and on social media as soon as possible. If school is delayed 2 hours, rehearsal will be held, unless otherwise noted on this website.

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.
