The Victoria Youth Guitar Orchestra offers the youth guitarist (age 13-19 give or take) the opportunity of playing in an orchestral environment while gaining ensemble, reading, and musicianship skills. From Bach to the Beatles, a variety of classical, jazz, and popular music will be rehearsed and performed. This ensemble welcomes classical and acoustic steel-string students. Students must be capable of reading melodic music notation in first-position and/or above. A casual meeting with the director to ascertain musical level is required before registration.

In addition to rehearsals and performances, this ensemble will also undertake social activities and extra learning opportunities through the organization of masterclasses, performances, and lessons.

A note to teachers: Every effort will be made to honour, include, and promote teachers of students in the orchestra. Whether you are teaching privately or at a music institution, Bradford wants the students and parents to know who you are and the great work you’ve been up to. Although the group is hosted at the Conservatory of Music, this will be a community ensemble for anyone in Greater Victoria.

The Victoria Youth Guitar Orchestra is offered as an ensemble course through the Victoria Conservatory of Music.
