Auditions will be held online this week for the N.C. Symphony’s Youth Sinfonietta, an exclusive chamber orchestra made up of 14- to 21-year-olds from across the state and led by the symphony’s renowned staff of conductors.
All auditions will be held by video audition submission. After completing an online application form, students can record and submit videos of the required repertoire, from which their participation will be determined.
Auditions will be open and video submissions considered until 5 p.m. Friday. Information and the online application can be found at ncsymphony.org/educationprograms
Twice each year, members of the NCS Youth Sinfonietta come together for a week of intensive coaching with N.C. Symphony musicians and rehearsals with N.C. Symphony conductors.
The experience culminates in a public performance of challenging classical repertoire. This year’s January and May 2013 concerts will be led by Resident Conductor William Henry Curry and Music Director Grant Llewellyn, respectively.
“The ensemble is distinctively ambitious in programming,” said Jessica Nalbone, director of education for the NCS. “Students who apply for the Sinfonietta will be a part of an advanced group, capable of performing some of the more challenging orchestral works, and have the benefit of working intimately with two internationally renowned conductors.”
