Repertoire Guidelines

  1. Contestants must audition on the Concerto they would like to perform with the Orchestra.

  2. The piece should be no longer than 20 minutes in length.  In many cases, this will mean performing only one movement of a standard concerto or a shorter work with orchestral accompaniment playable by the YYSO.

  3. Please confirm your music selection with the Music Director/Conductor prior to the Concerto Competition auditions
