Surrey Symphony Society is holding auditions next weekend.

Try out for the orchestra

Young musicians sought for Surrey ensembles.

Auditions for the Surrey Symphony Society’s youth orchestra programs for the upcoming season will take place on Sept. 10.

Young musicians between the ages of seven and 21 are invited to audition for the award-winning orchestra program, which includes the Junior Strings (age seven and up), Intermediate Strings (age nine and up), and the Youth Orchestra (age 12 and up).

Our new Chamber Music Program is also accepting students from age seven to 21. It is also now open to music students who are not members of the orchestra program.

The orchestra program has openings in the strings section – violinists, violists, cellists and double bass players – for players who have attained at least Grade 3 Royal Conservatory or the end of Suzuki Book 2.

The Youth Orchestra is also specifically seeking players age 12 and up, for the oboe, bassoon, French Horn, trumpet, trombone and tuba sections. Percussion players are also encouraged to audition.
