Ensemble Prerequisites

YOBC ensembles are all ability-based and placement in YOBC ensembles is at the sole discretion of the auditioners and YOBC conductors. Students audition for placement in YOBC, but not for a specific ensemble. For internal auditions, students can review these prerequisites for an idea of what skills will be required to succeed in each ensemble.
