Willamette Valley Junior Honors Symphony Auditions 2019-2020

Thank you for your interest in auditioning for the Willamette Valley Junior Honors Symphony (JHS). To audition for JHS, students must be members of their school music program and in grades 6-10.

JHS has an expanded season this year! There will be two sessions; students are encouraged to participate in BOTH sessions

Fall Session: October 1 – December 3, 2019. Concert on Sun., Dec. 8.
Spring Session: February 18 – April 21, 2020. Concert on Sun., April 26. 

Auditions for the Fall session (and to participate in both Fall AND Spring sessions) will be Tuesday, September 17 – Thursday, September 19 at Crescent Valley High School in room B2, from 5-9pm.

Audition slots will be 10-minutes long. Students will be required to play a 2-octave scale and a 2-3 minutes of a solo piece. Sight-reading will also be required.

If you are only able to participate for the Spring session, please audition in the Spring.
Spring auditions will be held on February 4-5, 2020. Audition sign-up will open at the end of December. Students who audition in September and participate all year do not need to re-audition in February. 

The first JHS Rehearsal will take place on Tuesday, October 1 from 7-8:30pm in room B2 at Crescent Valley High School. JHS rehearsals will continue on Tuesdays up to the JHS Winter Concert on Sunday, December 8 at the LaSells Stewart Center (3 pm).
