Information for the 2020-2021 Season auditions will be placed on this page by February 1, 2020.

Some helpful things before then 

Special Note about Jazz: Due to our audition and placement process, you must choose to audition for either GDYO Jazz or the Orchestral Program (all other ensembles).  You cannot audition for both.  Please read the ensemble descriptions and the audition information carefully before making your decision.  Please contact us if you have any questions.

Auditions Postponed

 

Due to the ongoing threat of COVID-19 we are postponing our 2020-2021 season auditions for all ensembles except GDYO Jazz.

Our current hope is that we will be able to reschedule the auditions for dates in June.

Once we have secured new audition dates and times we will be in contact to schedule your audition.

For those people we are unable to reschedule due to travel, summer plans, etc we will accept a video audition in place of our live audition.

We thank you for your patience and hope you are all keeping safe.

Sincerely,

GDYO
