Philharmonic is an intermediate auditioned orchestra comprised of advancing string, wind, brass and percussion students. Players are expected to be comfortable in a more extended range (shifting for string players, higher registers for wind/brass), and to be able to play in various keys (through four sharps or flats) and with more advanced bow/articulation techniques. Approximate Suzuki level 3-5 and up. Rehearsals are Monday evenings 6:00-8:00 pm, with additional sectionals and dress rehearsals as scheduled.
When/how will audition results be communicated?
Important note: Orchestral placement is at the discretion of the conductors, regardless of the student’s declared intent. Age alone is never a determining factor in orchestral placement; OYS ensembles are arranged by playing level. Orchestral assignment is made with intent to create the overall best experience for each student.
