Calling All Pianists

Do you play the piano? Are you interested in joining WYSO for the 2017-18 season? Since a substantial amount of this season’s repertoire calls for an advanced pianist, we have created a designated piano position in the WYSO for this season. Preference will be given to students who can commit to the 2018 Youth Orchestra International Tour to Peru.

To schedule your audition, please click here. Questions? Contact WYSO Interim Music Director Randal Swiggum.

The audition will include:

  1. Scales (3 octaves, hands together, up to 4 sharps/4 flats; also chromatic scale)
  2. Solo: 3 minutes in length; this should be an advanced level piece (or excerpt) at Grade 6 difficulty or higher.  Examples would be movements from sonatas by Mozart, Beethoven, Scarlatti, Bach WTC Preludes and Fugues, an excerpt from a standard concerto, etc.  Your solo should represent your highest level of playing.  Please bring a single judge’s copy of this piece
  3. Sight reading
