Musicians 2018 Offers

Thank you for your interest and effort in auditioning for SCYO for 2018. It can be a challenging task to align musicians skills, development path and interests, with the available ensembles, and we thank the conductors and musical director for their efforts. Each year the conductors spend many hours sorting through the audition process  - every consideration is taken into providing well balanced ensembles for musicians, not only for technical levels but also to ensure our young musicians are placed with their peer levels. However mistakes can be made and occasionally over the years there have been some minor errors. If you feel for any reason that you have been placed in an incorrect ensemble or if your name has been missed from a list please do not hesitate to contact Maria - maria@scyo.org.au.


An offer of placement into SCYO for 2018 will be emailed shortly together with an invoice from our treasurer. 


SCYO String Ensembles

Congratulations to all the students who auditioned in the SCYO string ensembles for 2018. Offers for each ensemble are available below. Some positions of leaderships have been assigned and other positions will be allocated in the first few weeks of rehearsals. All other places are in random order and further seating will be finalised after the annual camp. 

Note re Youth symphony strings - This year we had a huge number of string players apply for a position within the Youth Symphony and we are aiming over the next few years for 2 symphonic orchestras. However, for this year, we are going to propose the following: Offers are made for Youth Symphony strings as per the attached list. Musicians with a hash sign (#) against their name have been invited to be a part of the Select SCYO YS string section for 2018. Musicians without the hash sign against their name are also invited for Youth Symphony strings and will rehearse and perform with the other strings, but for some pieces may move out of rehearsals to a tutorial environment where they will work on their YS music. This is seen as a more integrated approach than "playing up" from Sinfonia. The rehearsals will still be on Wednesday evenings from 4 45 - 6 45 and each week Chelsey and Maria will prepare a schedule for the following week. All string students will be required to attend for the entire two hours. Details for how rehearsals will be run will be finalised over the holidays.
