The SCV Youth Orchestra is a three-tiered instrumental education program that was founded at CalArts in 1969 and moved to College of the Canyons in 1989. The program provides a positive and creative outlet for hundreds of young musicians throughout the Santa Clarita Valley.
The annual Wine Classic has traditionally been a major source of funding for the Youth Orchestra program, ensuring that young people with a passion for music can continue to benefit from the experience that participation in a dynamic and vibrant orchestra can provide.
