Audition

Audition for the 2022-2023 Season

DYAO has completed its primary round of auditions. If you auditioned on one of the May dates, results notices were emailed on Friday, May 27, to the email address used to register for your audition time. If you do not see the email in your inbox, check your spam/junk folder or try searching for an email from "rachael@dyao.org" with the subject "DYAO Audition Results."

If you did not participate in this past round of auditions, but are interested in potentially open spots in our ensembles, please email Rachael DeLange. Include your full name, instrument, and which orchestra you're interested in auditioning for. DYAO will hold a late audition date in August, and more information will be provided here later in the summer. The audition materials will remain the same and can be found below. If you have questions, please contact Program & Orchestra Manager Rachael DeLange by email or phone (303-433-2420).

Which orchestra should I audition for?

To answer this question and to read our Instrument Proficiency Standards, check out our Orchestras page. If you aren’t sure, you may want to take these standards to your private teacher for guidance. You can also be considered for more than one orchestra! If you are considering auditioning for two orchestras, for example, the Young Artists Orchestra and the Conservatory Orchestra, be sure to prepare the repertoire for the higher level orchestra and only sign up for one audition time. (You will only be placed in one ensemble.) You can contact Program & Orchestra Manage Rachael DeLange (rachael@dyao.org) with questions before signing up for an audition.

What do I play at the audition?
