Our Mission
CCYO is a 501(c)(3) non-profit musical group dedicated to cultural enrichment through symphonic music. Our goal is to use our God-given talents to glorify Him through music and to allow our musicians to play and share their music in His Name for Him.  It is our hope to create a diverse organization that not only creates a welcoming environment for our musicians, but also develops a strong sense of family among our parents and community members, leading them closer in their relationships with Christ.
Balanced Participation Program

CCYO is dedicated to helping parents form well-rounded Christian youth leaders. We recognize many of our musicians participate in additional activities (Church, Sports, Dance, Theater, 4H, Scouts, American Heritage Girls, Youth Group, and more) and this is part of their formation.  

As such, we are committed to partnering with coaches, directors, and advisors to come to a balanced agreement on time spent in each organization.  

Balanced Participation tuition rates for 2023-2024 will be announced March 31, 2023.
