DYO 2015 – New Members Are Welcome!

The Dunedin Youth Orchestra has finished its programmes for 2014 and will return in 2015, featuring concerts conducted by Anthony Ritchie and David Burchell in May and September. Both concerts will feature a winner of the 2014 Young Musician’s Awards, Olive Butler and Matthew Scadden, and in addition, the winner of the 2015 Audrey Reid Composition Prize will also have their piece premiered in the September concert. (Entries for this competition are open until April, so get working on your compositions over the summer!)

We are now accepting registrations for interested (and returning) musicians – simply visit www.dyo.org.nz/register and fill in the online form. As per our auditions policy, entrance is by audition, which will be held in February 2015. Auditions will include a number of given extracts and sight-reading; you will not be asked to perform your own music. Applicants are suggested to be of approximately Grade 6 level and will receive further information about auditions after registering.

Thank you all for your support of the youth orchestra this year. We look forward to receiving many more registrations for next year’s orchestra and wish you all a safe and happy holiday!
