Interested in auditioning?
We are excited that you are interested in applying for one of the GDYO ensembles. The program consists of two full orchestras, three string orchestras, a wind ensemble, a flute choir, and nine jazz combos. We want to make the process as user-friendly as possible. Please follow the steps below to walk you through the GDYO audition process and finish by filling out the online application form.
- Step 1) Read through the Audition FAQs —everyone should take the time to do this.
- Step 2) Look over the Audition Requirements (large ensemble auditions—not jazz) or proceed to the Jazz Institute Audition Information (jazz auditions).
- Step 3) Fill out the Application Form.
The fee for applying is $25 (nonrefundable).
