OYCE believes that no student shall be turned away because of ability. To better serve our members we do ask for a short benchmark audition so that we may set our members up for success. Benchmark auditions will be done in the first rehearsal of the year to place your student in the most optimal part of that ensemble.
Certain ensembles do require auditions due to the limitations of the ensemble. These ensembles include:
OYCE Big Band led by Alex Bodytko
OYCE Jazz Orchestra led by Jesus Lopez
Chamber Orchestra led by Daniel Cortes
These auditions help us decide where students are best placed based on numerous factors.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to ask at
Your registration fee allows us to reserve your student's spot and prepare materials prior to rehearsals and performances.
