Applications for NYO and NYOKids

NYO is an auditioned ensemble for 14-25 year olds. Auditions are held in November of each year for the following calendar year, though auditions by appointment throughout the year for new applicants are welcome. Applicants will be required to present an excerpt (of the panels choosing- found below), one solo piece (own choice) of between 2-4 minutes and will be asked to sightread in the audition.

Please contact Michael Power to request application information for current or future placement in the orchestra. Sample audition excerpts from previous years can be downloaded below. Please note these are NOT the excerpts for 2017 applicants.


NYO Kids is an ensemble for 10-16 year olds that is by application only. We recommend students are at least Grade Two AMEB standard or equivalent for this ensemble. Please contact Shannon Laundon for more information
