Please note, Spring applicants are allowed only at the discretion of the conductors, in order to provide instrumentation needed; therefore, you should make every effort to audition in May or August, for the fall concert cycle and beginning of season (season spans 3 concert cycles, Fall, Spring, and Summer). August is the the last open audition for the full 2017-18 season. Those who audition and are accepted will be able to attend informational sessions, group activities, and events in the Fall season. Please indicate in your video if you are trying out for Strings or Woodwinds, Brass or Percussion and which orchestra group - beginning string players will be in Prelude Strings. For more advanced strings players, or early woodwind or brass musicians, you will try for either the Philharmonic (intermediate) Orchestra or Symphony (advanced) Orchestra.
Please remember there is a fee for being in the orchestra. Annual payment is discounted at $295 when paid in one lump-sum. OR Four $75 summer installment payments may be made from May-Aug. Financial aid covering full tuition and half tuition is available for those who qualify. Please contact us at email@example.com if you would like an application.
Otherwise, monthly auto-payment plans are available for $37.50/month for 10 months, but please note: this option costs substantially more overall, and is only offered as a last option that requires approval from the program director to enroll in, and these monthly auto-payment plans may not be cancelled for any reason -- even if a student drops the program.
