About GVO: The Greenwich Village Orchestra (GVO) is the only symphonic orchestra of it’s kind in downtown Manhattan. We’re a 70-person volunteer outfit (with a full brass section), committed to providing Lincoln Center quality at East Village prices AND having fun in the process. Our membership is ethnically diverse, and we range in age from 22-82. We are accountants, actors, artists, attorneys, carpenters, editors, physicians, professors, programmers, psychologists, retirees, scientists, secretaries, teachers, writers and dedicated musicians. Under the baton of outstanding music director, Barbara Yahr, the GVO performs Bach to Bartok and beyond (yes, we’re brave enough to premiere modern compositions). In addition to our regular concert season, we get off the stage and into the community. We hold an annual children’s concert (complete with an instrument petting zoo), we’ve recorded on the forthcoming album with Irish band, Mr. North, and we continue to collaborate with the Union Square Partnership on a neighborhood benefit concert. For more information, visit us online at www.gvo.org, and find out how we continue to put the ‘cool’ back into classical.
