The Music Committee is a standing committee of the GVYO board, made up of the Music Director, the Musical Advisor, the Manager and selected board members. The Music Director makes artistic decisions for the orchestra in consultation with the committee.
This group is made up of all GVYO parents living locally. (more than 1/3 of the GVYO players come from outside our area.) Members of the parents' committee assist the manager in many routine operations such as: managing rehearsals, meal preparation at workshops, telephoning, coordinating ticket sales, and mounting special events. The parents' committee also does some fundraising for the orchestra. Some projects have included: volunteering regularly at Bingo events, the Gourmet Basket Raffle, Chocolate Sales, the Quilt Raffle, The Classical Cleanup (Spring Garden Cleanup), and Casino Events.
Board of Directors
The GVYO is administered by a board of directors, 15 people who come from a variety of disciplines in the community and all of whom volunteer their time to enable the orchestra to exist. The board makes decisions about the artistic direction of the orchestra and secures the funds to enable the orchestra to function.
