Player Commitment

  • Rehearsals are on Friday evenings from 6 to 8pm in the Dunedin Symphony Orchestra Rooms, Hanover Street.
  • There are two ten week semesters each year with a concert held at the end of each semester.
  • Each section of the orchestra will have a weekend practice session in both the first and second semesters.


  • Commit to being present at ALL rehearsals and sectionals.
  • Pay your subscription of  $200. New for 2024 – for families with more than one child, siblings of the first child are charged at $150 each. (You are paying just $3 per hour for the orchestral rehearsals each week, sectionals with a specialist tutor and performance opportunities and training- it is very good value for money). Please pay directly into our account (Dunedin Youth Orchestra – 38 9012 0791955 01) using initials and last name as a reference. No cash or cheque payments please. If paying for more than one player, please put the payment through for each player and not as a group payment (this helps keeps our recording of payments clear).

Note: We do not wish financial hardship to be a barrier to joining the orchestra. If this applies to you please contact the treasurer (who will treat this with the utmost confidence).
