The Santa Clarita Valley Youth Orchestra (SCVYO) Foundation and the College of the Canyons student orchestras have been awarded a $9,000 challenge grant from the Henry Mayo Newhall Foundation (HMNF) to establish a musical library on the COC Valencia campus.

The library will lend music and materials to SCV area schools, youth organizations and both private and public musical ensembles.

The SCVYO Foundation is a nonprofit organization that supports three student instrumental performing groups at College of the Canyons: the Prelude Strings, Intermediate Orchestra and the Symphony of the Canyons.

As a condition of the grant, the SCVYO has been ‘challenged’ to raise an additional $9,000 in order to receive the grant money and move forward with its music library project. For more information about the SCVYO Foundation or to make a donation to the music library project fund, contact Peggy Cannistraci at (661) 255-1626 or visit
