Hi, I'm a violinist from KY, and I want to audition for the national youth orchestra.
But before I put a lot of work into auditioning I want to know what chance I have of getting in. I really really want to get in but I'm not sure what I'm up against. I'm not a particularly good violinist but I work really hard and I play decently. I'm the concertmaster of my youth orchestra but it's not a very good youth orchestra. I'm also fifth chair second violin in a college orchestra nearby. I'm currently studying Zigeunerweisen, and the Hyden symphony 104.
I've already learned the Mozart violin concerto in g major. but I haven't learned a classical violin concerto yet.
I've played Rimsky korsakov's capriccio espagnol in my last concert and I've played the last movement of Beethoven's fifth symphony.
So, do I have a chance of getting in?
I love playing violin and it would be the most amazing thing to play in the NYO but I'd rather practice something else if I know I don't have much chance of getting in.
Thanks for any help.
