Since 2002, the Castro Valley Orchestra has provided 3-4 concerts per year to the Bay Area community.  We are a class of the Castro Valley Adult and Career Education (CVACE).  Our players’ tuition only covers a portion of our expenses.  Our generous supporters (you!) make up the difference!  


The Castro Valley Orchestra Association (CVOA) is our non-profit entity dedicated to ensuring the orchestra’s longevity and health.  We are a 503(c) organization–check with your tax advisor to determine the deductibility of donations–we will send you an acknowledgement for tax reporting purposes if we have your address information. Your contribution helps cover the cost of tuition, music rentals, guest soloists, orchestra member scholarships, auxiliary musicians and more

Every dollar advances our mission: making orchestral adventures accessible to players and the public. Join our supporters by making a tax-deductible donation today.
