Past Seasons

(Videos located near the bottom of the page)

The choice of music we play is SO important! It must be challenging but within our ability to play well. I select from a wide range of styles and eras of music, but every piece must be enjoyable! Every time I call a tune, I want someone in the room to say, "Yay, this is my favorite!"

- Anne Marie Patterson, previous CCYO Conductor
