Why join the NYO New Youth Orchestra Program?

NYO is a great place to improve the ensemble skills of young musicians. It's also a great place to be surrounded by others who have similar musical interests. 


What levels and instruments are accepted into the ensembles?

Here, there's a place for all levels, from intermediate to super advanced. We have seven core ensembles for ages 7 to 25. 


Orchestras are open to mostly string players and bands are open to woodwind and brass players. Selected wind performers are chosen and placed into our more advanced orchestras.


What are the requirements for the Mid-Season audition?

All performers are required to perform a solo of their choice. One that would best provide an example of the performers quality of tone, rhythm and musicianship.


Also a hand full of scales will be required. 


Lastly, music sight reading will be given at the audition to test each students reading ability.


Where are the Auditions held?

All auditions as well as weekly rehearsals are conveniently held at our wonderful facilities in Sorrento Valley. 


When are the rehearsals and is there a strict policy for attendance?

All rehearsals are held on Saturdays each weekend. We allow for three rehearsal absences per semester, but concerts are required in order to continue as a NYO member in good standing.
