Youth Orchestra Auditions

Youth Orchestra in rehearsal


Applications accepted continually and any openings in the orchestra will be filled by audition and will draw from the most recent applications submitted.  Current audition application deadline for our 2016-17 season is August 1, 2016.  Audition periods will likely begin after August 28; specific dates for each instrument will not be set until after the deadline has passed and all applications have been received. 

Auditions periods for Youth Orchestra membership are held twice annually—in spring and early fall—and are open to musicians ages 12-20 who are prepared for a serious commitment to challenging repertoire and to the full rehearsal and concert schedule.  Not all instrument groups will have audition availability during both audition periods.  For more precise details, please check with us after each application deadline.
