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 on their audition, recommendation of their current conductor, and available openings in the orchestra.

  • Conductors will recommend student placement in an orchestra for the following year, based upon their technical and interpretive level of current YOBC repertoire, their contribution to the musical ideals of their ensemble during the rehearsal process, and their audition.
  • 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.
