Auditions

Auditions are held in the spring for NVYS and Sinfonia, though we do take auditions in mid-August, just before our season retreat, and throughout the season after each concert.

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. Students auditioning for Sinfonia must prepare one one-octave scale, a solo demonstrating his or her highest technical level, and may be asked to play a sight-reading excerpt (provided at the audition) to demonstrate music literacy.

Students auditioning for NVYS must prepare two three-octave scales, a solo demonstrating his or her highest technical level, an excerpt (provided below), and a sight-reading excerpt (provided at the audition) to demonstrate music literacy.

See below for more information about audition requirements, skill requirements and excerpts.

Go to our Audition Sign Up page to schedule an audition.
