Albany Strings Education

The Mid-Valley Prelude Sinfonia (MVPS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose goal is to provide an opportunity for youth in the greater Albany area to play violin, viola, cello, or string bass in a group setting. We offer group classes in several Albany public schools and two youth orchestra groups for more advanced players.
