What if I want to audition for multiple orchestra levels?

Audition requirements are grouped by orchestras based on ability and experience level. Please prepare only ONE set of audition requirements from the levels below. If you are between two levels, choose the set of requirements that best demonstrates your musicianship. The orchestra level you choose to audition for does not ensure placement in that orchestra; audition judges and conductors will make decisions based on the overall quality of your performance.

  • Philharmonia (beginning strings – no winds)
  • Sinfonia / Concertino (developing strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion)
  • Camerata / Concert Orchestra (advanced strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion)
  • Philharmonic / Symphony (most advanced strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion)

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.
