OYS’s most advanced auditioned student orchestra is made up of highly capable string, wind, brass and percussion players through grade 12. Musicians are expected to have developed an advanced range and tone, and be able to play in any key. Vibrato and/or other advanced techniques are required, as music is selected from the standard Symphonic repertoire. Rehearsals are Monday evenings 6:00-8:00 pm, with additional sectionals and dress rehearsals as scheduled.
When/how will 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.
