PYP Audition Info

Upcoming spring auditions for PYP Ensembles:

–The Young String Ensemble, conducted by Ines Voglar Belgique, Assistant Principal Second Violin of the OSO;

–The Portland Youth Wind Ensemble, conducted by Dave Matthys;

–The Portland Youth Conservatory Orchestra, conducted by Larry Johnson;

–The Portland Youth Philharmonic, conducted by David Hattner


Scholarships are most definitely available; no qualified musician will be denied membership because of inability to meet the full tuition fee.

 You may have received a mailing from us recently with some actual printed-out application brochures, but I’ll also include here the brochure (see the attachment) and the link to the Auditions Page on the PYP website:

Please pass this information along to students and families; please let them know they can also call the office and ask for Ann Cockerham, Orchestra Manager, and Ann will have answers to all their questions.


Best as always,
