harpThe Kankakee Valley Youth Symphony Orchestra is dedicated to young musicians in the 7th grade through high school and their musical training. Our Board of Directors works diligently to bring the best educators from the area to work with our students at Olivet Nazarene University. By having our concerts and practice sessions at ONU, we are assured of teaching our musicians in a university setting with all of the amenities that are offered there.

Throughout the year, we perform in various venues with our two main concerts at ONU’s Larsen Fine Arts Center in the Kresge Auditorium. Other concerts take place in our local community schools twice per year and our performances have become ‘can’t miss’ events. We are always asked back to play again as soon as we can.

So, if you are a parent wanting to start or continue lessons, wanting a good place to take your child on Sunday afternoons, or you are an accomplished student looking for a challenge, the Music Academy or the Kankakee Valley Youth Symphony Orchestra is the place to be. Come check us out, you will be surprised what you find. You’ll make a lot of friends, and have a lot of great experiences.

See you at the concert!
