Youth Orchestra Competition

Rivers Youth Orchestra

Open to students enrolled in the Rivers Youth Orchestra program only.

Two winners will be chosen to perform with the Youth Symphony (full orchestra accompaniment) or Philharmonia (string orchestra accompaniment only).

Students are required to play one movement of a concerto of their choice from memory with accompaniment. For the audition, the piece should not exceed 8 minutes, so cuts should be made if needed. Winners will be allowed to perform whole piece for the concert at the discretion of the Conductor/Music Director. All contestants must have their concerto approved by RYO conductor Christopher Memoli before entering the competition.
