AUDITIONS FOR KZNYO (article first published : 2003-10-16)

Auditions for the Kwazulu Natal Youth Orchestra (KZNYO) will be held on October 24 at St Mary's in Kloof. The age limit is nine to 23.

Most instruments of a conventional symphony orchestra are represented in the KZNYO. In 2003, there were approximately 60 members of the orchestra from 23 different schools. The orchestra performed regularly in various parts of KZN in popular and well-received programmes of varied types of music.

The orchestra holds a five-day course for intensive rehearsal of new music for the 2004 season at Greystones, near Estcourt, the week before schools reopen for 2004 (January 11 to 16). All members of the orchestra are required to attend this course.

The orchestra's 2004 season runs from the beginning of the first term to about the middle of the third term. Through this period there are rehearsals or concerts most Fridays. Rehearsals are held at St Mary's, Kloof on Fridays from 16h00 to 18h30.

The purpose of the auditions is to fill current vacancies in the orchestra. Auditionees will be required to play a short piece, or part of a piece, of their own choice, demonstrating their level of technical ability. They will also be required to play prepared passages selected from the orchestra's 2004 repertoire. This offers an idea of the level required in the section of their choice.

For further information, copies of audition music and to book an audition time contact Ted Brien on 031 266 8584 or e-mail: tedbrien@ananzi.co.za

Auditions for current members of the orchestra will be held later, details still to be released.
