Please read the audition guidelines for your instrument below and review them with your music teacher.

We do notice your attire. We request that you dress appropriately.

A note to violin and flute students: Because of the large number of violin and flute students requesting auditions, we generally accept only those older than grade 7. Rare exceptions are made for very advanced players. We strongly encourage middle school violin and flute students to audition for the Young Musicians’ Orchestra.

All audition decisions and seating assignments are made solely by the Music Directors. In certain rare cases, depending on the balance of specific instrumental sections, students may be notified immediately of their acceptance to the orchestra.

Please contact Lenora Hume at lhume@dcyo.org or David Demcher at ddemcher@dcyo.org for questions or additional information about DCYO or YMO auditions.

Importantly, when completing the audition form below, carefully fill in all of the required fields correctly. If a required field has been incorrectly filled in, the form will not send when you press the “Submit Audition” button. The form will “page up” to the area in question. Please notice the information box outlined in red, make the necessary correction and re-submit the form.

A Note to Those With Hotmail Accounts. We have noticed that Hotmail tends to block our confirmation emails from being delivered to your email account. If you have another email provider, other than Hotmail, please use that email address as your primary parent email when filling out this audition form.
