Rockford Symphony Youth Orchestra
The RSYO is holding auditions for new students for the 2019-12 Season.
Auditions will be held at the Riverfront Museum Park, 711 N. Main Street, Rockford, IL, in the RSO Offices on the second floor of the building.
Each audition will last approximately 10 minutes.
Musicians will be asked to play:
1) Two contrasting solo pieces (concerto movement, etude, etc.) of 3-5 minutes length. One piece should be fast and demonstrate virtuosity and technical skill, the other should be slower to show the applicant’s musicality and quality of tone.
2) Scales— from memory preferred— Major and minor 0-4 flats and sharps, plus chromatic scale. At least two octaves, 3 preferred.
3) Sight-reading- will be provided.
Auditions are judged according to six categories: Musicality, Intonation, Technique, Tone Quality, Scales, and Sight-reading.
