Corvallis Youth Symphony Auditions 2020

Thank you for your interest in auditioning for the Corvallis Youth Symphony’s 2020-2021 Season! To audition for CYS, students must be members of their school instrumental music program and in grades 9-12. 

Due to the challenges presented by Covid-19, this upcoming season will look quite a bit different from past seasons. During the Fall (September-December), CYS will operate as a hybrid program, consisting of a combination of small ensembles (spaced as necessary) and online engagement–including classes, lectures, and interviews with world-renowned musicians, composers, and conductors! In December, we will hold a live-streamed performance of our small instrumental ensembles. We hope to return to full orchestral rehearsals and repertoire in the new year, but will make all decisions based on Oregon Health Authority and school district guidelines. Either way, we plan to deliver quality musical content to the students of the mid-Willamette Valley, as CYSA has done for the past 38 years! 

All auditions will be through Video Submission only. Videos are due by July 10.  See Audition and Video Submission requirements below. Audition results will be emailed to families by Monday, July 20. 

Audition Requirements:

Strings/Winds/Brass

  • 2-octave (minimum) or 3-octave (preferred) major or minor scale of your choice.
  • Contrasting sections (lyrical/technical) from a solo in the standard repertoire. Please prepare no more than 2-3 minutes of each section.

Percussion

  • Play a 2-octave (minimum) or 3-octave (preferred) major or minor scale of your choice on a mallet instrument or piano.
  • Play one concert snare solo (a solo piece of your choosing, such as from Cirone’s Portraits in Rhythm, or you can use THIS piece). 
  • Optional: Play an etude or piece for mallet instrument. 

Video Submission Requirements

Willamette Valley Junior Honors Symphony Auditions 2016

The Corvallis Youth Symphony Association (CYSA) invites you to audition for the opportunity to play in the Willamette Valley Junior Honors Symphony (JHS) during its 2016 season. JHS is a full symphony orchestra for intermediate wind, string, and percussion players in grades 6 through 10. Being part of JHS will give you an exciting opportunity to rehearse and perform symphonic music with other dedicated music students.

Auditions will be held on the following dates:

  • Monday January 11th (2:45-5pm) at North Albany Middle School
  • Tuesday January 12th (5-8pm) at Crescent Valley High School in Corvallis
  • Thursday January 14th (5-7pm) at Crescent Valley High School in Corvallis

The first of 10 weekly rehearsals will be Tuesday February 9th at Crescent Valley High School from 7:00 to 8:30pm, with a retreat (where professional music teachers coach individual sections of the orchestra) from 9am-12noon on Saturday April 2nd. Some rehearsals will be held at North Albany Middle School. The season will culminate in a concert with CYS on Sunday April 24th at 3pm at LaSells Stewart Center.

Andy Nelson returns as conductor of JHS for his 9th season. Mr. Nelson is the band director at North Albany Middle School and brings enthusiasm and experience to this role. Bryce Caster, former CYS member and U of O music performance graduate, will assist Mr. Nelson with the string sections.

Your parent or guardian must accompany you to your audition. You will be asked to play a 2-octave scale and a short (two to three minute) excerpt of your choice from solo repertoire.

You must be a member of your school’s band or orchestra program to be a member of JHS.
