Symphony Orchestra

YOL 2016-17 Audition Application

Under the direction of Dr. Laurie Williams, the YOL Symphony Orchestra is designed for the more advanced players on string, woodwinds, brass, and percussion instruments of the orchestra. Students are chosen on the basis of an annual audition that includes excerpts from the standard orchestral repertoire.  Auditions for all Symphony sections are competitive, particularly in the winds, brass, and percussion, as there are a limited number of spots for these instruments.

The Symphony Orchestra performs two or three concerts per year, hosts an annual concerto competition for its members, and conducts an annual intensive retreat.
