Get Involved



Thank you for your interest. We have completed our first round of auditions. Orchestra assignments and results will go out in mid-June. We will update our website regarding 2020-2021 orchestra openings in July, so please check back at that time. We will have late auditions for open positions in our orchestras in August. For more information, email

*Due to availability of venue and instruments, percussion auditions will be held in late July or August.  If you wish to audition for DYAO as a percussionist, please email Rachael Brown to let her know. Include your full name, your school and whether you have been a member of DYAO in the past.  Audition slots for percussionists will be posted in July .

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 with any questions before signing up for an audition.

What do I play at the audition?

You will find the audition packets for the 2020-2021 season below.
