About the Orchestra

The Cannon Valley Regional Orchestra (CVRO) was founded in 1979 by conductor Paul Niemisto as a program of the Northfield Arts Guild. CVRO is a diverse group of volunteer musicians performing symphonic music, drawn together by our love of rehearsing and performing this fine repertoire. Anyone with talent, experience, and motivation is welcome to join us, from exceptional twelve-year-olds to octogenarians. Explore their 40th Anniversary concert information here.

Mission: The CVRO was founded to help create and promote orchestral music culture in the Cannon Valley communities of Southeast Minnesota.
