Private music teachers are an excellent resource when preparing for an audition – we encourage musicians to ask their teachers before beginning audition preparation which orchestra they would be best suited to audition for.

Musicians are welcome to prepare the materials for the Philharmonic Orchestra if they wish, but coaching faculty reserves the right to make placement decisions based on the audition results.

Please feel free to reach out to the HPYO General Manager, Courtney Prizrenac if you have questions regarding audition preparation and the two orchestras.
