Auditions for WYS and WYO
Wellington Youth Orchestras has two orchestras, Wellington Youth Sinfonietta (WYS) , and Wellington Youth Orchestra (WYO). They are organised to suit different levels of players, and to provide an environment that supports development of players.
WYS is intended for players who have reached approximately Grade 6. WYO is intended for more advanced players who have reached approximately Grade 7—8. These are not absolute limits and you can apply to either or both. You will be offered a place based on your audition performance. If you are not sure which one to apply for, please take some advice from your music teacher. There is no lower age limit to either orchestra. There is an upper age limit of 26.
