Open Auditions for NMYO 2018-2019 Concert Season
Posted: Apr 18, 2018
The Northeast Massachusetts Youth Orchestras (NMYO) is now registering musicians for the 2018-2019 Season! Auditions for all new and returning NMYO musicians will take place on Saturday, June 9th between 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM at Ipswich High School, 134 High Street, Ipswich, MA.
String, Woodwind, Brass, and Percussion students from ages 6-18, and at all levels of playing, are invited to audition. Used to determine proficiency on the student’s instrument and to assign ensemble placement, the audition is required to join NMYO. The audition includes scales, a piece of your choosing showing contrasting styles, and sight-reading. To register for an audition time, go to nmyo.org/auditions and click the “sign-up” button.
NMYO offers eight ensembles including two beginning string ensembles – Prelude and Overture; two full orchestras – Intermezzo and Symphony; a Wind Ensemble for intermediate and advanced winds, brass, and percussion; and three levels of Flute Choirs. Small chamber music ensembles are also offered as part of the Symphony program to challenge the more advanced players. NMYO ensembles perform two major concerts and several smaller concerts annually. Weekly rehearsals are held in Topsfield/Boxford conveniently located near Route 1 and just off Interstate 95.
