Auditions for the National Youth Orchestra of Ireland take place once a year. Everyone must audition even if they have been in the orchestra before, this helps to keep our standards high and gives everyone a fresh chance each year. Applications will open from 5th August 2013.
You will be required to prepare orchestral excerpts for your audition and these will be made available in August.
