Centenary Youth Orchestra sets auditions for 2018-2019 season
SHREVEPORT, LA — The Centenary Youth Orchestra (CYO) has set three audition dates for its upcoming 2018-2019 season. The CYO provides a unique opportunity for student musicians 13 years of age and up to perform side-by-side with college-level musicians studying at Centenary’s Hurley School of Music. Conductor Daniel Santelices is entering his second season leading the CYO.

Auditions will take place at the Hurley School of Music on Monday, August 27, from 7:00-8:30 p.m., Friday, August 31, from 4:00-6:00 p.m., and Sunday, September 9, from 2:00-5:00 p.m. Auditions may also be scheduled by appointment with the conductor for those unable to attend those dates. Audition requirements for bowed-stringed instruments, woodwind and brass instruments include one major and minor scale, a two to three minute solo selection, prepared orchestra excerpts selected by the conductor, and sight reading. Keyboard/piano, harp, timpani and percussion players need to also prepare a short solo selection and requested orchestra excerpts.

The 2018-2019 CYO season includes afternoon concerts on Sunday, November 18, 2018, and Sunday, March 17, 2019. The opening concert will feature two CYO members in concerto performances. Harpist and Airline High School sophomore, Emily Jordan, will play Antonio Vivaldi's enchanting Harp Concerto in D-Major and Caddo Middle Magnet 8th grade violinist, Calvin Alexander, will play the thrilling Mendelssohn Violin Concerto. The CYO will also perform Mussorgsky's Night on Bald Mountain. In the March 2019 concert, the CYO will tackle the overtures to both Beethoven's Egmont and Offenbach's Orpheus in the Underworld, but the centerpiece of the program will be Franz Joseph Haydn's Symphony No 94, otherwise known as the "Surprise.”

"It is a privilege to be able to introduce these masterworks to our students and ultimately foster pride in their presentation to our campus community, area, their family and friends,” says Santelices. “I am excited to showcase the outstanding talent within the ranks of the orchestra.”

Rehearsals for the CYO begin Monday, September 10, from 7:00-8:30 p.m. in Feazel Rehearsal Hall at Centenary’s Hurley School of Music. Student musicians should contact the CYO at [email protected] or call the Hurley School of Music office at 318.869.5235 to schedule an audition.
