We're bringing the music back!

On September 10, join us on Facebook for a full day of performances, special guest appearances, and prize drawings - all in support of the Valley Symphony Orchestra's fall season.


Virtual VSO is a fundraiser to help us create and stream online concerts this fall. Be a part of bringing music to everyone in the Valley and beyond – give a gift in any amount today! We can only continue through the generosity of others.


The first 100 donors that make a gift of $30 or more to the Virtual VSO campaign receive a custom Virtual VSO t-shirt!

You will be asked for your shirt size after completing the checkout process.


Head over to the Virtual VSO Silent Auction to place your bids on prize packages from Rio Bank, Coffee Zone, Kendra Scott, and more. The auction closes at 6:00 pm on September 10.

(begins September 7)

We want to see your photos of past evenings at the VSO! Enter to win a Virtual VSO prize pack, which includes a Virtual VSO commemorative t-shirt, gift certificates from local restaurants, music CDs, VSO masks, and more.


It's very easy to participate; just follow these easy steps!

1) DM your photo to VSO through Facebook Messenger or email photo to jonathan.vasquez@valleyorchestra.org — VSO will then upload your photo to the new Facebook album “VSO Memories”

2) Get as many people as you can to like (react) to your photo. This can be done by directing people to the album to find your photo or by sharing your photo post for others to like the photo. (Note: likes and other reactions on shared photo posts will not be counted. Be sure to have supporters like the actual photo itself in the album.)

3) At the determined times (TBA), the eligible photo with the most likes (reactions) will be selected as the winner. (multiple selections will take place)

4) Winners can pick up their prize at the VSO Office of Administration on the determined date.
