All GPYO students are encouraged to play music that challenges and rewards them. At the conclusion of every season, students who would like to "move up" to a more challenging ensemble are encouraged to re-audition. Students in the Preparatory String Ensemble and Preparatory Wind Ensemble are encouraged to audition for the Concert Orchestra. Students in the Concert Orchestra are encouraged to audition for the Symphonic Orchestra.
Current and recent GPYO members who would like to move up in Fall 2021 should submit a move-up audition video by August 30 at 8:00 pm. The audition requirements for a move-up audition are the same as the audition requirements to enter the program as a new student. Please prepare a single video with all of the components, including required scales, arpeggios and solo pieces.
Please refer to the Fall 2021 Audition Requirements page in order to make your video. Make sure to follow the audition requirements for the ensemble that you wish to move up to, not the ensemble you are currently in.
Please also read our Technical Guidelines for preparing and uploading your video.
Then use this form to upload your audition.
Students who would like to remain in their current ensemble do not have to submit new audition videos.
Please plan to register for the 2021-2022 Season by September 10, 2021.
