Auditions are held in the spring and late summer for all ensembles, though we do take auditions throughout the season after each concert. Our next auditions will be February 21st.

Our next audition is Wednesday, May 3rd at Napa Christian School (2201 Pine Street) and Saturday, May 6 (location TBA).

All students must re-audition every year. Each musician must prepare two scales (One octave for Sinfonia, two to three octaves for NVYS) and a solo demonstrating his or her highest technical level. Musicians auditioning for NVYS will also be given an excerpt to prepare prior to the audition. Students may also be asked to perform a sight-reading excerpt to demonstrate music literacy.

Go to our Forms page to download audition forms and excerpts.
