In the third phase of the audition, you will play your required excerpts.

These excerpts are designed to provide the judges with a basis for adjudicating students on the same materials with the same length of preparation. Excerpts change from year to year and are provided by our conductors.

Read the complete instructions for 2021-2022 auditions here.

The 2021-2022 WYSO audition excerpts are now live!!! Please direct any excerpt questions to music librarian Joe Greer at greer@wysomusic.org.

Youth Excerpts

Philharmonia Excerpts

Concert Excerpts

Sinfonietta Excerpts

Opus One Excerpts

NOTE for Woodwinds, Brass, and Percussion: If you are uncertain about which orchestra to select, the best route is to prepare the Philharmonia/Youth materials(Excerpt sets A and B). Concert Orchestra (Excerpt set B) requirements are encompassed within the Philharmonia/Youth audition materials, so in preparing the extra material, you will in effect be auditioning for all three orchestras. If you audition on the Philharmonia and Youth materials and are not accepted into one of those ensembles, you will still be considered for Concert Orchestra.
