Auditions for entrance into the youth orchestras are held each year in the spring. Members are accepted by audition only, including members of the previous year’s orchestra. Applicants must be a member of a school music organization playing the same instrument as is played in the Youth Orchestra. If there is no school orchestra or band, an exception may be made. Age requirements vary by orchestra.
The membership fee for participation in the Dayton Philharmonic Youth Orchestra is $375.00 (2017 – 2018). The membership fee for participation in both Dayton Philharmonic Youth Strings and Dayton Philharmonic Junior Strings is $200.00 (2017 – 2018). These fees cover administrative costs such as conductor salaries, rehearsal and performance space, and music. Financial Assistance is available for any students who may need help with the cost of the membership fee. This organization does not intend to deny an eligible student membership due to financial hardship.
