Bundaberg Youth Orchestra is open to all young musicians in the Bundaberg region aged under 23 years. Membership is determined by an application and audition process.
BYO1, our senior orchestra, is selected by audition only. Auditions are usually scheduled early in the year after applications are received. Members from previous years need to re-apply for membership but may not need to audition unless they are applying for a position as Section Leader, and have not previously held this position. If applicants who audition for BYO1 do not meet the standard for BYO1 they may be offered a position in BYO2.
BYO2, our training orchestra has a four rehearsal (one month) trial period and membership is offered if applicants meet the playing standard and are complying to the Code of Conduct for the orchestra after the trial period. An offer of membership is determined by the Conductor of BYO2 in consultation with the BYO Committee.
Application forms are available to download by clicking the button at the top of our website and can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are required for membership of both orchestras. Parents must provide us with contact details prior to applicants being allowed in rehearsals.
