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.

Spring auditions for new JHS students will be held on February 4-5, 2020. Students who auditioned in September and participate all year do not need to re-audition in February. 

Audition slots will be 10-minutes long. Students must prepare a 2-octave scale and 2-3 minutes of a solo piece. Sight-reading will also be a part of the audition.

The first JHS Spring Rehearsal will take place on Tuesday, February 18 from 7-8:30pm in room B2 at Crescent Valley High School. JHS rehearsals will continue on Tuesdays up to the JHS Spring Concert on Sunday, April 26 at the LaSells Stewart Center (3 pm).
