Maple Valley Youth Symphony Orchestra
Dates: 8/5-9/2019

Our studentts will be divided into 3 playing groups.  They will be sorted according to playing experience on registration along with  other factors including, but not limited to, private lessons, music reading ability, etc.  We will error on the side of placing the student in a group that might be too easy.  If the student feels their group placement is too easy or too difficult, they will have the opportunity to look at the music for a different group and decide to move up or down on either early music pick up day on August 2 or on the first day of camp.   All students will also have smaller group coaching. *The group listings below are only guidelines.
