Serving San Joaquin County since 1965, the Central Valley Youth Symphony provides young people ages 8-22 with the opportunity to play great symphonic music while making new friends! Weekly rehearsals at the University of the Pacific in Stockton prepare our student musicians for 3-4 concerts each season in Stockton, Tracy and Lodi. CVYS features two orchestras, and students in both groups receive expert coaching from Music Director Thomas Derthick and Preparatory Orchestra Conductor Shane Kalbach, with assistance from faculty and students from the University of the Pacific Conservatory of Music.
