Before submitting your audition on this page, please ensure you have first read the registration and fee information and filled out the Registration Formhere.
Prepare your Audition material. The audition requirements are as follows:
Youth Strings: One piece of your choice of at least grade 4 level (approx 5 minutes) + 2 octave scale of your choice
Youth Concert Orchestra: One piece of your choice of at least grade 6 level (approx 5 minutes) + 2 or 3 octave scale
Youth Symphony Orchestra: One piece of your choice of at least grade 9 level (approx 5 minutes) + 3 octave scale and arpeggio
If you are auditioning for more than one orchestra, you can submit just one audition, but your audition material should fulfill the requirements of the more advanced of the two orchestras. For example, if you want to be considered for either the Concert Orchestra or the Youth Symphony Orchestra, you would indicate on the form that you are auditioning for both, but you would submit one set of audition material and it would fulfil the requirements of the Youth Symphony.
Record a video of you performing your audition material; accompaniment is not necessary. For recording tips see here.

After the WYO Conductors have reviewed the auditions and registration information, you will be contacted with confirmation of your acceptance and for which orchestra. At that time you will receive information on fee payments.
Warning: You will receive a confirmation of receipt after you submit your audition. However, depending on your email provider and settings, this may land in your promotions/spam/social folder.
