Please nominate the orchestra of your first preference below. Consider listing a second or an additional preference as
there is no guarantee you will be placed in your first preference. Please
discuss with your teacher to ensure you are applying for the orchestra/s most
suited to your standard and within the age limit. You will need
to prepare the musical excerpts provided by QYO which will be available in
September. The excerpts are chosen by
the artistic panel to reflect the standard required for the orchestra of your
first preference. You will only be considered for the orchestras that you list
and preferences should be listed in order of QYO standard, eg. QYO2 before
QYO3. Big Band can only be listed as first and only preference. If you would like to audition for another
orchestra in addition to Big Band, or audition on a different instrument (eg. both cello and flute), you must complete a separate application.
If your parent/guardian or
you (if you're over 18), can marshal for 1-2 hours around your audition time, (especially brass), please complete details and the
office will make contact if you are needed on the volunteer schedule. The marshals help to keep auditions running on time by marking the roll and directing students to warmup and audition rooms. Thank you.
All applicants must be regularly
studying with an instrumental music teacher. QYO recommends you discuss
preferences with your music teacher to ensure you are applying for the
orchestra/s most suited to your standard and age.
QYO may contact your music teacher regarding your application.
