Valley Youth Orchestra, Montrose and Delta Colorado
The Youth Orchestra meets and performs primarily in Montrose and Delta, Colorado, but we have young orchestra members from various surrounding areas such as Ouray, San Miguel, and Mesa Counties, and even as far as Rifle, Colorado. We hope YOU will join us!
Are you interested in auditioning for the Valley Youth Orchestra? Here is what you will be asked to play in your approximately six minute "kid-friendly" audition:
-A portion from a prepared solo piece of your own choice. -One or more scales of your choice. -Music for sight-reading, chosen from the repertoire that the VYO may be playing in the upcoming season or have played in the past. (This assumes that you can read music at the level of more than half of Suzuki Book 1.)
The Audition for the 2013-14 Season is on Saturday, August 17th, from 8:30am at the Delta Methodist Church, 5th and Meeker.
Contact us if you have questions about auditions or need to audition at a different date. You should note from the photos that we are a string orchestra with members from 6 through 18 years of age.
