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 Spring 2022 should submit a move-up audition video by December 20, 2021 at 8:00 pm. No fee is charged for move-up auditions.
Please use this form to submit your videos.
Audition requirements for a move-up audition are the same as 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 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.
A mid-year transfer between ensembles will trigger an additional tuition payment.
