We are looking forward to hearing all young musicians interested in playing with the Calos Youth Orchestras. We are providing you with two options to audition for the orchestra.

Recorded Auditions: Interested musicians are asked to prepare and record their performance of the audition music which can be found under the tabs to the left on this webpage. You can upload your performance mp3 file and provide us with a shareable link (onedrive, googledrive, etc….). You can also upload your video to youtube and send us the link. The deadline for submission for the 2021-2022 season is September 7, 2021 at 5:00 pm. Send it to calosauditions2021@gmail.com. If you need help doing this, please contact Grant Etchegary. (getchegary@gmail.com)

Live Zoom Auditions: Interested Musicians are asked to contact the Calos Office (calos.office@gmail.com) to arrange for a live audition time. You will need access to a computer to facilitate the Zoom audition. See below for more information. Auditions will be scheduled for September 7, 2021. 

Here are some guidelines that you can use to help you prepare for your audition.

1) New musicians must complete the audition request form.  We will be in contact with you shortly afterward.
2) New musicians should access the audition material that can be found under the tabs to the left on this webpage. Download and print the information PDF for your instrument. If you have problems, please contact getchegary@gmail.com
3) Prepare for the audition. If you are taking private lessons, consult with your teacher for help in preparing. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Grant Etchegary at getchegary@gmail.com. We are here to help you.
4) The whole audition process will take no longer than fifteen minutes for the Live Zoom audition option. During this time you will have the opportunity to perform for and speak with the artistic team of the Calos Youth Orchestras. The audition panel is extremely friendly and the audition experience is very casual. Though it is easy to say, there is really no reason to be nervous.

More information regarding the audition process, orchestral excerpts can be found here.
