Audition Requirements


All players must audition for a position in the ensemble.

Your audition will include two orchestral excerpts (provided by TYO) and a short, prepared piece of your own choice (accompaniment is neither necessary nor permitted).

The audition panel may also request some technical work and sight-reading, appropriate to the AMEB standard of the ensemble.

Apply today to access your excerpts and start practicing!
