NVSO Announces Auditions for Youth Ensembles

For 15 years, In&Out Magazine has been the definitive source of “Everything that’s going on” in and out of the community. We thank you, our readers, as well as the businesses that support the magazine through advertising, for that opportunity. But with little going on, and many businesses suspending or canceling their ads during the Covid-19 crisis, we are suspending publication of the magazine and web sites for the month of May.

NVSO — North Valley Symphony Orchestra is pleased to announce the first audition dates for the youth ensembles’ upcoming 2018-19 season.  NVSO provides a wonderful opportunity for all levels of youth string players, to include a non-audition beginner’s group (North Valley Symphonettes), and opportunities for intermediate and advanced string players to audition and play in North Valley Youth Strings or North Valley Youth Orchestra. If you can meet weekly to rehearse and are willing to commit to the necessary practice, NVSO wants you in one of their three youth orchestras.

Auditions are being scheduled for a variety of time slots on Sunday, May 20th, and Saturday and Sunday, June 9th and 10th. Audition instructions and excerpts can be found at the “Join Us” tab at the website, northvalleysymphony.org.

Auditions are held with the Youth Orchestra Music Director, Josh Lynch and the Youth Strings Music Director, Orlando Moss, in attendance. If interested in auditioning, contact Josh Lynch at joshl@northvalleysymphony.org, or fill out the “Contact Us” page at the website. Schedule your audition as soon as possible – appointments will fill up quickly.

North Valley Youth Orchestra and North Valley Youth Strings rehearse at the North Canyon H.S. band room and choir room Mondays, 5:00-6:30 p.m., beginning August 20th. End-of-semester concert dates are being finalized in December (2018) and May (2019), with NVYO additionally performing at NVSO’s four major concerts (October, December, March and May). NVSO’s youth ensembles also perform at community outreach events.

NVSO also offers a training orchestra, North Valley Symphonettes, that does not require an audition. NVS provides a fantastic way for young string players to experience playing in an orchestral environment, performing outside of school or private lessons, and meeting other young people with the same passion for music. NVS is open to players with at least one year of experience or more, and rehearse Mondays at North Canyon H.S., 5:00-6:30 p.m., beginning August 20th. If interested in joining North Valley Symphonettes, contact Music Director Kevin Kozacek at conductor@northvalleysymphony.org.

All three NVSO youth ensembles will perform a free concert Saturday, May 5th, 3:30 p.m., at Cactus Shadows High School, 5802 E. Dove Valley Rd., Cave Creek. This concert will be a great opportunity to get to know more about NVSO’s youth programming, and might inspire young string players in the north valley to join.

NVSO is supported by the Arizona Commission on the Arts with funding from the State of Arizona and the National Endowment for the Arts, and also the Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture through appropriations from the Phoenix City Council.
