The WYO season runs from September to April. Auditions and Registration take place in the spring before the new season begins. Auditions are traditionally in person; to adapt to restrictions during Covid19 auditions for the 2021-22 orchestra season will by video submission.
The goal of the organization is to ensure that each musician is comfortable, happy and challenged by their experience in a WYO. Auditions give conductors the opportunity to see each musician play and assess which orchestra is the most appropriate placement for them and which pieces and parts they will handle most successfully.
