SCYO Audition for 2020 (for reference)
Date: 19 – 20 October 2019

Registering for the Audition
Please book an audition time slot online at scyo.fullslate.com. A small, non-refundable audition fee (comparable to most other Australian youth orchestra’s) is payable when booking.
If the audition weekend is completely unsuitable, you may choose to submit a video audition. Please note that you will still need to book an audition time slot and pay the audition fee, as the audition panel will review your video during the audition time booked. You can submit an audition video before 17 October 2019 through one of the following methods:
- Email your video recording to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Upload to any online storage (Google Drive, Dropbox etc.) and send the link to email@example.com
- Save onto a USB and give it to Linley Chai (you may ask your SCYO ensemble conductor to help pass it on)
Which ensemble should I apply for?
Consult your instrumental teacher for the most suitable ensemble, or come along to a rehearsal night and/or open rehearsals and discuss with the conductors.
We strongly advise and encourage musicians to discuss and work with their instrumental teacher to prepare the set excerpts and/or select the appropriate “own choice” piece. When choosing a piece, note that the maximum time to audition on one instrument is about 4 minutes across all pieces.
Offers for membership of an ensemble will be made in November. Membership fees are to be paid before the start of rehearsals the following February. Acceptance of a place in any SCYO ensemble is a serious commitment for the entire year! Carefully consider the need to attend Wednesday night rehearsals, weekend concerts, tutorials, workshops and other activities. An orchestral group cannot perform at a high standard unless all its members reliably participate. Audition fees are not refundable under any circumstances.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any further inquiries.
