• The VYOA artistic staff use an evaluation system developed and refined over the past two decades, assessing each student’s technical capabilities and musicianship.
  • Based on what we learn from the auditions (and to a lesser degree on what we know about students from previous interaction), the VYOA ensemble leaders collaboratively determine the appropriate placement for each of the 400+ students who audition.
  • Our goal is to offer each auditioning student a place in the VYOA ensemble that will provide a rewarding experience with the right mix of challenges, guidance, and opportunities for growth and success.
