Thank you for your interest in the Denver Young Artists Orchestra. Auditions for the 2020-2021 season were extremely competitive and we were so pleased to hear so many wonderful musicians! If you did not participate in either of our two rounds of auditions, but are interested in potentially open spots in our ensembles, please email Orchestra Manager Rachael Brown to let her know. Please include your full name, school name, instrument and orchestra for which you are interested in applying.
*Note: If you have already auditioned for DYAO this year, we thank you for your audition and we encourage you to apply again next year.
Which orchestra should I audition for?
To answer this question, check out our Orchestras page. Here you can find instrument proficiency standards to help you decide. 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! Be sure to contact us at 303.433.2420 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions before signing up for an audition.
