Audition Date: May 31, 2008
All String Players (violin, viola, cello, and double bass) between the ages of 13 and 29 are welcome to audition. Interested woodwind, horn and trumpet players may also audition for our programs that include winds.
The CYS is a chamber orchestra comprised of the finest middle school, high school, collegiate, and young professional string players in the region. We seek a complement of 16 violins, 6 violas, 6 celli, and 3 double basses, but will fill our roster with only the most highly qualified players.
The CYS presents three to four programs each season, with most programs being performed at least twice. This orchestra provides an opportunity to learn repertoire not usually programmed by larger ensembles, and may serve as a unique supplement to a full orchestra experience.
2007-2008 repertoire highlights will include: Brahms Serenade #2, Mendelssohn’s Symphony #4 (‘Italian’) and our annual baroque program. We will also collaborate with eminent local artists in concerto appearances. Past guest soloists include Linda Wang, Ricardo Iznaola, Alice Rybak, Bil Jackson, Michael Thornton, Richard Slavich and Eugenia Alikhanova.
For more information, application forms, or to request an audition time, please call 720-296-9047, email firstname.lastname@example.org , or visit www.coyoungsinfonia.com. Auditions may also be made by appointment.
