Placement for fall Youth Orchestra

The Patel Conservatory Youth Orchestra (PCYO) will soon have placements for its 2012/13 season.
Our youth orchestra features the Patel Conservatory Chamber Orchestra (PCCO) for advanced string, woodwind, brass and percussion players, the Intermezzo Orchestra for intermediate violin, viola, cello or bass players, and an extensive Chamber Music program.
Through PCYO, students learn to apply skills from private lessons or school music programs as they gain orchestral ensemble experience.

PCYO has performed twice at Carnegie Hall in New York City and at other prestigious institutions such as the New World Symphony in Miami.

PCYO performs both the classics as well as original music. Last season, PCCO premiered an original work by London-based composer Martin Gaughan.

All auditions will be heard by Gregory Ruffer, Music Department Chair, Stephen P. Brown, Principal Conductor, and Catherine Michelsen, Associate Conductor.

String, wind and percussion students will receive feedback on their performance from music faculty and placed in the ensemble that best suits their skill level.
Placement auditions will be:

August 13, 14 and 15
5:30-8 p.m.
To schedule an audition appointment, please e-mail music@strazcenter.org or call 813.222.1002.
