The Garden State Philharmonic Symphony Society will hold auditions for its 2012-2013 Youth Orchestra Program on Tuesday at the Toms River Intermediate School on Hooper Avenue in Toms River.
Audition time slots will be scheduled for potential members beginning at 6:00 p.m. Audition guidelines, applications and information about the current Youth Orchestra Program season will be available via the Philharmonic’s website at www.gardenstatephilharmonic.org after September 18th. Parents may also contact the Philharmonic office at (732) 255-0460 or firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information. A limited number of need-based scholarships are available for those who cannot meet the required membership fee.
The Youth Orchestra is a member-supported program allowing students in elementary through high school to explore advanced levels of instrumental music performance.
The Youth Orchestra is divided into three age-appropriate groups, each led by a qualified conductor/teaching artist. They rehearse weekly throughout the year and performs a minimum of two public engagements.
Advanced students have also been invited to perform alongside the professional musicians of the Philharmonic’s Orchestra as well as in special engagements at legendary Carnegie Hall and Avery Fisher Hall. The Youth Orchestra Program nurtures the instrumental talents of approximately 120 students annually.
