Audition Application Form

WYOS 2017 Audition Application Form

Entry to both orchestras is by annual audition before a joint WYO/WYS audition panel. Applicants will be expected to play a selection from the audition excerpts (provided on payment of the audition deposit of $200.00), plus some sight-reading. WYO woodwind and brass players should also prepare a solo piece of their own choice, lasting no more than five minutes.

Applicants should indicate which orchestra they would like to be considered for, but the offer of a place in one or other orchestra will be made by the panel on the basis of the whole audition (including sight-reading).

Orchestra subscriptions: The annual subscription is $450. Full-time university students qualify for a $200 subsidy. A refundable audition deposit of $200 must be paid before the audition excerpts can be sent out. The $250 balance of the subscription is due by 30 April. Payments of the balance made before 31 March qualify for a $50 early-payment discount.

We also offer fees subsidies (up to 100%) in cases of hardship. Please contact the Board Chair, Anne French, on 021 516372 or by e-mail in confidence to discuss.
