 Here's a message from our Music Director, Mr. Kociela...

Dear IVYS Parents and Students,

Greetings!  I was thrilled to have been appointed to the position of music director and conductor of the Inland Valley Youth Symphony Orchestra last season and have been invited back again for 2015-2016!  The IVYS staff and I look forward to collaborating with all of you to offer a program that engages and inspires the IVYS students as well as the surrounding community. My goal for IVYS students is not only improving musicianship and technical ability, but to create an atmosphere that gives rise to conscientious and well-rounded individuals who are inspired to set high standards for themselves.

Youth symphony orchestras are comprised of the most qualified and driven students in a given region. By expecting more of themselves musically students begin to expect more of themselves academically, as well as in other areas of life.  Students learn to prepare independently, work collaboratively, take pride in their work and humbly accept honest criticisms in order to improve. Lasting friendships are born, leadership skills are developed, and a truly fun time can be had while working on some of the greatest works of art.  

My youth orchestra experiences opened for me many academic, scholarship and career opportunities, and I will work diligently to enable the same benefits for each IVYS student.  I look forward to helping Inland Valley Symphony continue to build this dynamic educational, youth symphony program!

Warm Regards,                                                                                    

Tom Kociela
