AUDITIONS 2023-24

Auditions for Philharmonic and Symphony orchestras (and registration for returning members) are open now! We can't wait to meet you and help you find your place in NVYO. 

To learn more about each orchestra, visit nvyo.org/philharmonic OR  nvyo.org/symphony  
Steps to audition: 


1. Register on ACTIVE.com : let us know which date and time range you prefer (for audition in person), or if you will send a video audition. 


2. Choose the orchestra audition materials that align with your playing level, and prepare! (Note that placement is up to the conductors, regardless of which audition level you prepare.)  At your audition you will be asked to play:
scales, a solo or exercise that best demonstrates your playing level and ability, and an exercise or two provided by NVYO we ask you to prepare. These are all explained on the posted audition materials.  SEE BELOW. 
There are some coaching videos on our YouTube Channels to help you prepare. Search for audition prep video playlists.
