How long should my audition video be?

Our judges get to listen to so many great auditions! To help us stay timely, your total video length should be under 10 minutes. If you follow all of the requirements, your video should be less than 10 minutes.

Your solo selection should not be longer than 3 minutes. If your solo is longer than 3 minutes, please make appropriate cuts within the music.

Recordings must be completed in a single take (no editing or piecing together) in this order: scales, solo, excerpts.

Audition for GTCYS!

GTCYS auditions are opportunities for students to play their instruments so we can get to know them and match them with one of our ten school-year orchestras for the 2023-24 season. To audition for GTCYS, students register online, record a video, and submit an audition online.
