The Valley City Civic Orchestra:

Orchestra
After 50 years without a string program of any kind in Valley City, the Community School started a community orchestra in 1997. Originially the orchestra was a chamber orchestra of string players only, but the orchestra has now expanded to include string, brass, woodwind and percussion players.

Attracting members from Valley City and the surrounding communities, the orchestra is a true community group, including school age students, university students, and working adults and retired members of the community.

All those interested in joining the Valley City Civic Orchestra may contact Dr. James Adams at 701-845-7271 or the Community School Office at 701-845-7267 or connie.reiten@vcsu.edu for more information.
