Our three non-auditioned ensembles include the Triangle Youth String Sinfonia
(grades 7-12 only), the Triangle Youth String Orchestra
, and the Triangle Youth Jazz Lab
. Please see the information below for important information about our non-auditioned ensembles.
Sinfonia Proficiency Check:
There is no formal audition for Sinfonia, but new members must perform a scale and the Sinfonia Skill Sheet for their instrument at a proficient level to demonstrate readiness for the ensemble. Directors will be in touch with members to schedule a virtual meeting and decide seating before the first rehearsal.
TYSO Meet the Conductor:
All musicians 4th grade and above who can read music are accepted into TYSO. There is no audition, but the ability to read music is necessary.
In order to become acquainted with each participant’s playing and provide the best possible experience in the orchestra, conductor Myriah Luke would like to hear each participant perform one line of a solo virtually prior to the first rehearsal.
Jazz Lab Selection Process:
There is no audition for the Triangle Youth Jazz Lab. Participants will be selected based on their experience, desire to participate, family support for participation, and the ensembles big-band instrumentation need. We will accept up to 4 alto and tenor saxophone players, 2 baritone saxophone players, 5 trumpeters, 5 trombonists, 2 pianists, 2 bass players, 2 drummers, and 2 guitarists.
