The Gold Coast Youth Orchestra (GCYO) provides a broad range of orchestral and band experiences to complement and enhance the ensemble offerings musicians receive in schools. The GCYO offers a unique experience for young musicians; an offering not readily duplicated. Membership and Placement into an ensemble is done through an independent audition process. Young musicians aged from 8 to 25 years are invited to apply. Every position, in every group is auditioned each year, so new applicants are not disadvantaged; an equal opportunity for all.
Music Excerpts to be performed at audition are available here. Auditions approximate 5-minutes and each applicant is invited to play nominated music excerpts, plus 2-minutes of a piece of their own choosing.
