Orchestra Placement – Winds

Placement Process for Returning Wind and Percussion Students into an ORCHESTRA at All Levels

Selected wind and percussion students in Wind Ensemble and Fanfare Winds may qualify for placement in a YOBC orchestra in addition to their band ensemble placement. Returning YOBC wind/percussion students will be placed in an orchestra based upon available openings in the orchestra and the student’s musical qualifications.
  • Conductors will recommend student placement in an orchestra for the following year, based upon their technical and interpretive level of current YOBC repertoire and their contribution to the musical ideals of their ensemble during the rehearsal process.
  • Wind/percussion students who are accepted into an orchestra will receive a special notification by the end of May. This will be in addition to their band placement notification.
