The Santa Clarita Valley Youth Orchestra Foundation is the preeminent Orchestral training institution of the Northern Los Angeles area with a long history in the Santa Clarita Valley.

The Santa Clarita Valley Youth Orchestra (SCVYO) Foundation, a non-profit organization, supports the fine arts education via orchestral performances. It supports seven instrumental performing ensembles, from beginning to intermediate to advanced skill levels including The Prelude Strings, Orchestra, Symphony of the Canyons, Chamber Music, SCV Brass Ensemble, Guitar and Prelude Winds & Brass. Ensembles are directed by professional musicians with advanced music degrees.

The Foundation seeks to provide an instrumental education program for students eight years and older. Students study all periods of music from baroque through the modern era, with opportunities for master classes with Los Angeles’ finest musicians, chamber music performances, and travel.

Rehearsals are conducted in Pico Canyon Hall, the beautiful campus music facility at College of the Canyons in Santa Clarita, California. Performances take place in the state-of-the-art Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center, adjacent to the rehearsal hall.

Students, through exposure to expert instruction, musical knowledge, and ethnic diversity, acquire a love of beauty, learn to pursue excellence, demonstrate personal growth as musicians, and enrich the cultural life of our community.

Nearly 100% of our musicians graduate to four year universities. We have sent students to Julliard, Mannes, USC, California Institute of the Arts, Stanford, UC Berkeley, Harvard, UCLA, California State University Northridge and many other top tier institutions of higher education. We are the home for the best and the brightest young musicians in Los Angeles.

The foundation is registered as a 501 (c) 3 and gladly appreciates donations in support of this community’s long time orchestral performing arts program For more information about our programs, please visit our website at
