General Information

The Youth Orchestra program serves approximately three hundred students each year. Students from throughout the Fort Worth-Dallas area are selected through competitive auditions and are placed in the Youth Orchestra program according to demonstrated abilities. Orchestras rehearse weekly during the school year. Each group gives at three formal concerts each year and performs in other community events throughout the season.

(The Chamber Music Program is in addition to orchestra, but students in both orchestra and chamber receive a 20% discount off the chamber tuition.)

Tuition fees are due by the first orchestra rehearsal, but may be split into two portions, with the balance paid at the first rehearsal following winter break. A 20% discount is given for the second child and any additional children from the same family in the Youth Orchestra program. Scholarships on a need basis are available to deserving students.

Auditions will be scheduled after the completed application is received.

The primary auditions of the year are held in May for the next season, which starts in August. Limited auditions are held in August and by arrangement for unfilled positions. Some instruments like harp, piano, and saxophone are not needed as regular members. We will hear auditions for those instruments, to be called as needed. The May audition schedule is located below. Call 817-923-3121 to schedule an audition.
