NVYO Mentor - Performer Application
Why apply to the NVYO College Mentor - Performer program? Learn and perform excellent music with excellent people and excellent instruction; mentors receive NVYO membership free of charge, with top quality orchestral training and coaching, networking with professional musicians from around the region, free snacks (!) and volunteer hour opportunities. Make a difference while you improve as a musician, and develop skills that will help you both now and in the future! Northern Valley Youth Orchestras' college mentor-performer program is available by university instructor recommendation only, to college musicians sophomore year and above who play a symphonic instrument at a high level and are participating in their university ensemble(s), but would like additional symphonic experience and instruction and have an interest in helping indirectly mentor advanced high school musicians. We have a preference for music education or performance majors, but any strong player will be considered! NVYO's flagship orchestra, Symphony, rehearses Sundays Sept- November and January - March, usually in the evenings; NVYO Symphony performs unabridged symphonic music, both standard repertoire and new compositions. Rehearsals are usually at the Empire Arts Center, downtown Grand Forks, occasionally at UND or at concert venues. NVYO Symphony is conducted by Dr. Kevin Sütterlin, who is also the director of orchestras at Concordia College in Moorhead, MN. Required 2019-20 performances are November 11 and March 8, with other optional performances in the community and region. More information at
, on Facebook at /NorthernValleyYouthOrchestras, and in communications upon acceptance into the program. ALL instrumentalists who play a standard symphonic instrument are welcome to apply for a mentor-performer placement; at this time we are particularly looking for: brass, double reeds, string bass and viola. Needs can change throughout the course of the season based on programming, so we encourage all interested musicians to apply.
