WYO 08_22_16The Worcester Youth Orchestras are pleased to announce auditions and try-outs for their 2016-2017 season.

In residence at Auburn High School, the program offers orchestra, wind ensemble/concert band and jazz band.  Students enrolled in the Auburn Public Schools are eligible for a full scholarship ($700 value), and are highly encouraged to join as an additional musical opportunity.

Auditions are August 26th, 27th and 30th, at the Worcester Music Academy, 9 Irving Street, Worcester.  If you cannot make one of these dates, please contact us at info@worcesteryouthorchestras.org, and we can set up an audition by appointment.  Auditions are informal and consist of 2 scales, a solo piece of your choice and one sight reading excerpt.  Open to students grades 12 and under studying an instrument (winds/brass/percussion/strings).

For more information and to sign up, please visit www.worcesteryouthorchestras.org.  We present a number of concerts each year, including 3 performances at Mechanics Hall in Worcester.  In April 2017, the Symphony Orchestra will make a 7-day tour to Canada.
